What Is R2 Certification?

The Responsible Recycling Standard, also known as R2, sets forth requirements relating to environmental, health, safety, and security aspects of electronics recycling.

R2 requires e-recyclers to ensure that harzardous electronic material are managed safely and responsibly by downstream vendors-all the way to final disposition. It also prohibits e-recyclers from exporting these hazardous materials to countries that have enacted laws making their import illegal.

R2 focuses on the performance of electronics recyclers in the areas of:

  • environmental and public health
  • worker health and safety
  • security (data and facility)
  • the whole of the recycling process and chain of custody of materials through final disposition
  • Is GREENspot R2 certified?

    R2 certification is currently limited to recyclers or processors of electronic waste. GREENspot manages a collection program for electronic waste, but does not process the material directly. Our pledge is to use only R2 and e-Stewards certified recyclers to process any and all material collected through our GREENspot program.
