How it’s Recycled
We only work with trusted processing partners to ensure all materials will be processed in accordance with the regulation but also R2 and ISO 14001. Being a trusted circular economy partner, we ensure our processors prioritize refurbishment and reuse. Any electronics that are truly at the end of their life can be disassembled and recycled. Hazardous materials are delt with in a safe and responsible manner, and as little as possible is sent to landfill.
Know that our EEE processors securely erase all data and test electronic units before they are refurbished and resold. Consumer information is never in jeopardy. We receive a Certificate of Recycling for every load of electronic waste from our fully audited electronics recycling partners. Our partners processes have been developed to keep e-waste out of our landfills.
Separating e-waste both manually and mechanically, the system safely and securely breaks down old equipment into its reusable components. This process is fully transparent to the Ryse Solutions team. Our partners removes any hazardous materials, processes the e-waste, and diligently reports back. We only choose partners with recycling certifications and standards to ensure our clients collections.

• Ink/toner cartridges: specialty recycler
• Batteries: specialty processors
