R2/RIOS Certified Electronics Recycler

R2/RIOS Certified Electronics Recycler logo

R2/RIOS is a certification for companies that recycle electronics in an environmentally friendly manner. A Certified Electronics Recycler must implement and be certified to two standards: R2 and RIOS. The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industry’s integrated program is designed to help recyclers improve their operations and meet the emerging needs of the marketplace.

Responsible Recycling (R2) is a standard adopted by the industry to recognize quality, responsible recyclers that have strong and comprehensive environmental, health, and safety management systems.

The Recycling Industry Operating Standard (RIOS) provides a framework for a management system that includes key operational and continual improvement elements for quality, environmental and health and safety performance.
