Compliance

California regulates most electronics waste as “Universal Waste”. Universal Wastes are common hazardous wastes that pose a lower risk to people and the environment than other hazardous waste. As long as these materials are recycled in accordance with the Universal Waste regulations, they do not need to be treated as a hazardous waste.

Electronics are considered hazardous due to the lead in CRT glass, metals on circuit boards, batteries, mercury components and PCB’s found in some electronics.

Facilities which recycle Universal Wastes are subject to regulation by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), and must meet stringent regulatory standards.

Onsite Electronics Recycling conducts collection and recycling of electronics in full compliance with local, state, and federal regulations. We have an extensive knowledge of the State electronics regulations as well as hazardous waste regulations and put a focus on compliance. We have passed all DTSC inspections with no violations, attesting to our knowledge and focus on compliance. Copies of these inspections are available for review upon request.

Onsite Electronics Recycling puts the utmost priority on the safety of our personnel and clients we serve. In addition to maintaining and enforcing safety policies for all operations, we encourage all employees to actively correct and report any safety hazards they may see. We additionally hold monthly safety meetings with all staff, in which safety procedures are reviewed.

Why Use an E-Steward?

The Basel Action Network, a non-profit organization qualifies responsible electronics recyclers as E-Stewards.

Certified companies meet the most rigourous standards of environmentall and social responsibility and their processes have been verified by BAN.

These standards prevent the export of electronics to developing countries, which have seen significant environmental and human damage due to this practice.
