R2 is the most widely adopted standard for used electronics. On the call of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a broad stakeholder group had developed the R2 Standard (Responsible Recycler Practices Standard) for industries to manage unwanted used electronics items efficiently and protect workers from the hazards associated with electronic equipment.

Responsible Recycling Certification

R2 Responsible Recycling Certification is specific to a facility, and not to a company. The R2 Standard applies to all electronics recycling related activities at a physical address. It may be extended to multiple physical addresses through a multi-site certificate or additional individual certificates. R2 Recycling Certification demonstrates the facility’s commitment and adherence to the Environment, Human health and Safety and encourages recycling, reselling and refurbishing practices and procedures. Currently, following two certification programs are available for R2 Certification: 1. Responsible Recycling Certification: Standard for Electronics Recyclers. 2. E-Stewards Standard: for Responsible Recycling and Reuse of Electronic Equipment.
