What Can E-waste Cost?

Electronics may contain hazardous materials that are harmful if they end up in landfills. It is our responsibility as an electronics retailer to make sure the e-waste we collect from our customers, or utilize in our day to day operations, go to a recycler and not to a landfill.
Promotes responsible environmental stewardship by requiring all recyclers retained  to comply with standards regarding the reuse, refurbishment or recycling of products collected through our programs and the disposal of waste generated from the recycling process.
While it is important to do the right thing for the environment, recycling e-waste is also the law. There are environmental laws regulating the handling and disposal of electronics.

What's the risk?

The risk to the company for not following these regulations is enormous. Other major retailers have incurred major financial penalties for improperly disposing of material, such as e-waste.
Target - $22M
Walmart - $25M
Comcast - $25M
AT&T - $28M
Lowe's - $18M
CVS - $13M
Along with the financial risk, there is a reputational risk. Would you shop at an electronics retailer if you knew they were throwing their own electronics into the landfill? We need to be the trusted expert on electronics from selling to end-of-life.
