Xerox joins international recycling coalition

Rochester Business Journal
June 9, 2014

Xerox Corp. has joined the Sustainable Electronics Recycling International Coalition to help launch a program that encourages companies to responsibly reuse and recycle electronics.

Xerox is among 10 companies partnering with the coalition to support the program.

“We have a long history of supporting responsible recycling, so this effort is a natural fit for us,” said Diane O’Connor, vice president of global environment, health, safety and sustainability, in a statement. “For many years, we’ve vetted recycling vendors before we agree to ship them our electronics, and we encourage other companies to do the same.”

By joining the program, companies are making a commitment to support R2-certified electronics refurbishment and recycling, and to consider R2 certification when choosing a recycling partner.

R2 certified electronics recycling and refurbishing facilities adhere to best practices in areas that include worker health and safety, environmental protection, chain-of-custody reporting and data security. Xerox’s U.S. facilities that disassemble returned equipment, in Monroe, Ohio, and Cerritos, Calif., recently achieved R2 certification.
