Why Recycle?

Electronic waste is becoming a big issue. Companies that fail to practice ethical disposal methods risk harming the environment. Not recycling electronics leads to wasted natural resources and increased pollution. 

ViaTeK offers an efficient, cost-effective solution for companies saddled with outdated or non-functioning electronics. We use sophisticated technologies to ensure that your electronic waste is purposefully recycled. 

Why Certification Matters 

Unfortunately, there are companies in the electronics recycling space that do not share ViaTeK’s commitment to safe environmental practices. These bad actors sometimes ship their waste overseas to skirt local and federal legislation. 

At ViaTeK, we guarantee that your electronic waste will be handled ethically. We have top-of-the-line facilities in three states that are fully certified by respected bodies in the industry. These certifications show that our dedication to environmental sustainability is more than empty words. 

Our Certifications

We hold multiple valuable certifications. 

  1. R2 Responsible Recycling

The R2 Responsible Recycling Certification was specifically created by Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI) for the electronics recycling industry. To maintain certification, companies must conform to specific provisions regarding data destruction protocols, environmental, health, and safety management systems, legal requirements, and more. 

Companies that aren’t serious about safe recycling can never achieve R2 certification. The process involves site visits, interviews, and frequent audits. Surveillance audits are conducted yearly, while a full, multi-step audit is performed every three years.

Choosing an R2-certified company is a smart way to protect your business. With ViaTeK Solutions, you can trust that your electronic waste is being handled in a way that aligns with current sustainability and safety principles. 

  1. ISO 14001 Environmental Management

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) represents more than 160 national standards bodies. This specific International Standard extends to industries beyond electronics recycling. To be certified, companies must demonstrate enhanced environmental performance by implementing sustainable policies, using environmentally conscious suppliers, and more. 

ViaTeK Solutions strictly adheres to the requirements set by the ISO because we understand that the work that we do potentially affects the world.

  1. ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management

Published in 2018, ISO 45001 is the ISO Standard for occupational health and safety. At ViaTeK, keeping our employees and customers safe is our most important concern. We’re proud to follow the provisions of this standard. Electronics recycling relies on potentially dangerous equipment, so ISO 45001 is especially important for our industry. 

  1. ISO 9001 Quality Management System

ISO 9001 focuses on the customer. Specifically, companies need a quality management system that continuously meets customer requirements. When you see that a company is ISO 9001 certified, you can expect a better customer experience.

At ViaTeK, we never forget the reason why we’re here. We care about our customers and believe that we can offer superior electronic recycling services.
