Most electronics contain heavy metals that can be harmful to human health and the environment. With technology rapidly evolving in our increasingly digital age, outdated electronic devices are thrown away at an accelerating pace. Used electronics now account for 70 percent of the toxic waste found in landfills.
Legislation surrounding electronic waste is growing too. WM LampTracker is committed to proper management of electronic waste that is accountable to you and the environment with over 18 years of experience as industry leaders in Responsible Electronic Recycling.
All electronics collected and managed by WM LampTracker are processed by recyclers who are certified to one or all of the following certification standards, e-StewardsÂ®, R2 (Responsible Recycling) and/or RIOS (Recycling Industry Operating Standards).
These certifications demonstrate our adherence to stringent environmental, quality, worker safety and socially responsible practices when recovering and processing e-waste containing hazardous components. All collected electronic products and wastes are processed in the United States.
