Finding Top-Tier Electronics Recyclers - The R2 Standard

Finding Top-Tier Electronics Recyclers - The R2 Standard

Until recently, municipalities, businesses and residents seeking recycling services for used electronic equipment had very few assurances that electronic scrap would be handled correctly by their chosen recycler. Aside from a recycler’s promise, how would consumers of electronics recycling services know claims of environmental and social responsibility were authentic? Large corporations would sometimes take on the expense of auditing a recycler, and possibly even the recycler’s downstream vendors. However, this is a time consuming and expensive process that too few customers had the resources to perform. A certification program specifically designed for the electronics recycling industry was clearly needed. There was rising industry support to develop a standard that would effectively address the operational and materials management concerns associated with electronics recycling activities, and give customers confidence that their electronic equipment was being responsibly recycled.

Out with the Old and In with the New

Out with the Old and In with the New

 As the holiday season approaches, many will find a new computer, laptop, or LCD monitor or TV under their tree. And, as they unwrap their presents and discover these new electronics, their immediate response will not be “How do I recycle my old one?” However, after a couple weeks or months of sitting under a desk or in a garage, the time will finally come when the old PC, LCD, or gaming system will become “e-waste” and needs to be disposed of properly.

 That is where Accurate IT Services comes in. We recycle all electronics, from computers and laptops to televisions, cell phones, and all-around IT scrap. We are an R2-certified electronics recycler in Columbus, OH that can offer a free recycling service for most electronics. More importantly, we are able to offer upfront payment for remarketable electronic equipment.

"This is the first ever TV collection in the county. More and more recycling centers and landfills are refusing to take televisions because they are a hazard and expensive to safely process." - Angela Carbetta, Recycling Coordinator for Marion County Recycling & Litter Prevention


This electronics drop off event was open to businesses and schools instead of just residents. Accurate IT Recycling Services of Columbus collected all types of electronics for free, except for televisions. Because of the costs of processing, there was a $15 recycling fee for TVs.

Participants received food coupons from Buffalo Wild Wings and Perkins and a chance to enter a drawing for a flat-screen television from Servex Electronics.

Federal Legislation on E-Waste Recycling

Federal Legislation on E-Waste Recycling

Recently, the Responsible Electronics Recycling Act of 2011 was introduced with bi-partisan support in both the U.S. House and Senate. In short, the bill would make it illegal to send toxic e-waste to developing nations. Toxic e-waste includes, among others, waste Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs), waste batteries, and items containing mercury. These materials are essentially the “Focus Materials” defined in the Responsible Recycling (R2) standard developed by the EPA.

Recycling with us pays!

Recycling with us pays!

The slogan plastered across our website, truck, and business cards is a testament to our unique practice within our field. While most electronics recycling companies charge for their services, we offer ours free of charge to businesses, schools, and other organizations. In addition, the public is free to drop off all electronics, excluding CRT monitors and televisions, for no charge. More importantly, we are sometimes even able to pay the customer for remarket able equipment! Here at Accurate IT Services we attempt to find the value in all of our customers’ e-waste goods to maximize their asset return.

So how does this work, you ask? At Accurate IT Services, we will do an on-site value assessment of electronic equipment to determine its “remarketability.” We base our assessment on the age, condition, and specifications of the product. For instance, if a product is within four years of age, in good condition, and has remarketable specifications, there will most certainly be a payout. We base our payout scale on the remarket value of the product and provide the customer with a percentage of that, much like secondhand clothing stores or consignment shops.

An Update on Accurate IT Services Recycling Certifications

An Update on Accurate IT Services Recycling Certifications

As you may have already noticed, there are two very distinct logos at the bottom of our website. These logos indicate the certifications we are reaching for. Though we are not certified yet, all development, implementation, and maintenance of R2 and ISO 14001 standards are in effect throughout our operation. The final stage in our certification process is the Stage 2 Audit, which is scheduled for early August.

First, the ISO 14001 standard deals with the development, implementation, and maintenance of an Environmental Management System (EMS). This EMS allows the company to strive for the continual improvement of its operation and its footprint on the environment. This is primarily done through the establishment of objectives, targets, and their subsequent environmental management programs.

Collection event in Marion will take TVs; electronics from schools and businesses! Saturday June 11th

MARION - An electronics drop off Saturday will be the first opportunity for a television collection in the county and is open to businesses and schools instead of just residents.
Accurate IT Recycling Services of Columbus is collecting all types of electronics, free for every device except televisions.
Because of the costs of processing, there is a $15 recycling fee for TVs.
Mayor Scott Schertzer connected with the Marion County Recycling and Litter Prevention to get the collection organized, he said.
"Recycling is not mandatory, but generally people think it's a good thing to do," he said.
He was looking to get more people to participate in curbside recycling, and the idea blossomed out of that with investigation into the city's recycling program, Schertzer said.
Most drop offs where electronics are accepted are restricted to residential services. This one will be open to all kinds of businesses and schools.
"It's a good thing for everybody when we recycle," he said.
