NERC Grant Awarded to Sadoff E-Recycling & Data Destruction
Today, the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) has announced the award of a grant in support of efforts to become a certified electronics recycler to Sadoff E-Recycling & Data Destruction of Omaha, Nebraska. The grant, which was funded by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), will allow Sadoff to become the second recycler in Omaha to be certified to the R2 Standard, and only the third in Nebraska.
“We are excited to receive this grant as it allows us to achieve certification to the R2 standard, this achievement will allow us to grow our business in Nebraska which will result in a greater positive environmental impact for the safe and secure recycling of electronics throughout the state and region” said Markus McDonell, Quality & Management Systems Manager, Sadoff E-Recycling & Data Destruction.
The grant is a component of a comprehensive capacity building program in Nebraska that was initiated to support the responsible recycling of electronics in the state. Ensuring that electronics recycling facilities are operated with the highest degree of worker health and safety, environmental protections, data security, and compliance with all laws is essential to a sustainable and high-quality operation.
“When the program began in 2017, there were no certified electronics recyclers in Nebraska,” said Lynn Rubinstein, executive director, NERC. “Fortunately, CTA saw an opportunity to enhance the management and recycling of electronics through training and grants. This is the first grant to be awarded, and we anticipate one more will be presented to an electronics recycler in Nebraska that is successfully moving towards certification.”
