TechnoCycle Is Environmentally Responsible
TechnoCycle strives to be good environmental stewards both in the way we manage our customer’s IT assets and in the way our processes impact the environment. We continually monitor our policies and procedures to ensure that we:
- Align ourselves with industry standards and best practices and
- Comply with all applicable federal and state laws.
TechnoCycle is an EPA-registered facility (EPA #TXR000080398) and properly recycles all material received in compliance with The Recycling Alliance of Texas Standards. TechnoCycle also subscribes to a “zero-landfill, zero-illegal-export” policy, which means that none of the IT assets or e-waste that we receive go to landfills or get exported to underdeveloped countries.
TechnoCycle Is An Industry Leader
TechnoCycle seeks to meet or exceed all industry regulations, maintain a safe and healthy work environment for our employees, and preserve the data security of our customers’ IT assets. To meet these goals, TechnoCycle is certified to the following standards:
R2: 2013 Certified – Electronic Recycling
The Responsible Recycling Practices Standard (R2:2013) is the leading standard for electronics repair and recycling outside of the United States. As part of R2 compliance, we keep abreast of all regional and local laws, rules and regulations wherever we provide service.
R2 certification practices encompass:
- Proper management of environmental and occupational health and safety issues
- Selection and management of responsible downstream recycling partners
- Secure transportation and facilities
- Compliant data destruction practices
- Safe storage protocols
A baseline for any company involved in recycling or handling e-Waste, ISO 14001 is an international standard for developing and operating an environmental management system (EMS). Companies rely on an EMS to help them identify, manage, monitor, and control environmental issues relevant to their business with the goal of ensuring environmental impact is measured and improved.
This certification ensures that recycling processes comply with Occupational Health and Safety Advisory Services standards to provide a safe working environment for staff and external parties. The OHSAS 18001 certification ensures that companies meet legal and regulatory requirements for health and safety around the world.
NAID AAA Certified – Data Destruction Services. Plant & Mobile
NAID AAA certification verifies that a service provider meets stringent qualifications for secure information destruction. The certification specifications pertain to more than 20 areas of operational and security requirements including particle size, transport, video surveillance, access control, employee screening and training, and written policies and procedures.
When you work with a NAID AAA certified company you know that your information destruction meets strict requirements. If you ever need to present proof that your data was destroyed in compliance with information industry regulations you can validate that you’ve taken the proper steps to comply. This reduces your risk and liability and can be used as proof that you demonstrated “good faith” efforts to ensure confidentiality in your data and ITAD management in the event of a lawsuit or audit.
TechnoCycle’s certifications provide peace of mind that your data is destroyed in a compliant manner and that your IT assets were reused or recycled according to the latest Responsible Recycling (R2) best practices and environmental standards.
