While the e-waste industry has come a long way, we still face some big challenges. State programs are fragmented, best practices aren’t solidly defined, the high cost of recycling is perpetuating shipment of e-waste overseas, and consumers are confused about how it works.
That’s why ECS Refining developed ecollective, an organization of convenient drop-off locations for the recycling of unwanted and obsolete electronics. The program integrates state regulation, public outreach and the existing industry infrastructure to give consumers a choice, to make doing the right thing an easy part of their lives and to help us all manage this growing challenge, together.
Working together is the only way we can address this challenge and provide a solution that is easy, free and safe.
