4th Bin becomes certified recycler

The 4th Bin, a New York City e-waste recycler, has been awarded official e-Stewards Certification, becoming the first and only e-waste recycler in the city to hold this level of certification.

With a strong commitment to e-Stewards values and best practices, the 4th Bin adheres to the world’s highest standards for socially and environmentally responsible recycling, setting a new precedent for eco-conscious behavior across New York City.

The Basel Action Network (BAN), the creators of the e-Stewards standard and certification program, provides constant oversight on all levels of the program ranging from recyclers, auditor training, certification, and accreditation bodies, to ensure on-going integrity of the certifications. e-Stewards Certification enables individuals and organizations who dispose of their old electronic equipment to easily identify recyclers that adhere to the highest standard of environmental responsibility and employee protection. The certification is open to electronic recyclers, refurbishers and processors in all developed countries.
