Green News: NYC’s 4th Bin Pursues e-Stewards Certification
The 4th Bin has made quite a name for themselves in NYC as being the leading provider of ethical electronic waste rescue and recycling solutions. They do what they do best by recycling e-waste responsibly, all while making it extremely efficient with personalized door-to-door pickup for both residences and commercial businesses. Although they are already at the top of their recycling game, the company is aiming to go even farther – now striving to reach the utmost respect by pursuing official e-Stewards Certification.
In order to be rewarded the e-Stewards Certification, The 4th Bin has to prove to the Basel Action Network (BAN), the creators of the certification, that they uphold the carefully crafted recycling standards that are expected of an ethical recycler. Recyclers must be accredited, independent and specially trained, and BAN provides constant oversight on all levels to ensure the on-going integrity of the certifications.
Leaders of The 4th Bin have made it quite clear that they are thrilled to start the certification process. “As NYC’s leading recycler, The 4th Bin takes its commitment to both ethical recycling and our community seriously,” said Michael Deutsch, Co-founder and CEO of The 4th Bin. By pursuing certification, The 4th Bin hopes that it will prove to their customers and community that they are dedicated to meeting the highest standards of e-waste recycling in all aspects including worker safety, human health and the environment.
If The 4th Bin is granted certification, they must adhere to the e-Stewards Standard for Responsible Recycling and Reuse of Electronic Equipment, a set of thorough guidelines written specifically for the e-waste recycling industry. Along with the environmental impact, there are a number of reasons to choose the e-Stewards program, and The 4th Bin aims to fully embrace all of them. The e-Stewards Certification eliminates data leakage, and insists that recycling is done in a manner that will not endanger data security and health and worker safety. They are an independent organization that is dedicated to solving the e-waste crisis, and does so one certification at a time. Because of the rigorous verification system, companies that get certified are held to high standards to keep their certification.
With all of the genuine dedication and effort The 4th Bin invests into what they do, they are a leading choice for a complete, comprehensive ethical e-waste partner. Best of luck!
