ROCHESTER, NY – June 23, 2011 – PICS Telecom International, a leading supplier of new and used surplus telecommunications and data equipment, announced that it has received the Responsible Recycling (R2) accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) - American Society for Quality (ASQ) National Accreditation Board (ANAB).
R2 is a set of guidelines for use by electronics recyclers to promote better environmental, health and safety, and security practices when recycling end-of-life electronics. The R2 certification received by PICS is specifically for the “processing of electronics and telecommunication equipment for reuse and end of life recycling.”
"The R2 certification was very important for us," said Tim Williams, CEO. “We have over 120 asset management partners that look to us to recover the value of their surplus assets. The primary way we recover value is through the resale of that equipment, but when there is no longer a market for those surplus assets, our carrier partners look to us to recycle that equipment using environmentally sound practices. The R2 certification enables us to comply with the rigorous standards of their sustainability programs.”
