ECS&R makes electronics recycling easy for both the residential and commercial sectors.
Did you know since 2010, the US DEP has prohibited residents & businesses from throwing away electronics in the weekly trash? You can now take comfort in knowing that your electronic equipment is completely demanufactured. We responsibly recycle all components minimizing the impacts to the environment while protecting your liabilities.
At ECS&R, you can rest assured that we are disposing and recycling your electronics properly which is not the case at many companies. For more information on the electronics recycling epidemic in America, click to read this article by VICE.

Permitting/Certification: ECS&R is permitted & bonded through the PADEP permit 081 for electronic demanufacturing. In addition, ECS&R operates Pennsylvania’s 1st R2 Certified company for electronics recycling. (ReCom Services, Inc.). R2 certification (sometimes referred to as responsible recycling certification) is a company level certification based on the R2 standard overseen by the R2 Technical Advisory Committee (TAC).
The standard is described as “Responsible Recycling (“R2″) Practices for Use in Accredited Certification Programs for Electronics Recyclers”. The standard requires certified companies to have a policy on managing used and end-of-life electronics equipment, components and materials based on strategies such as reuse, materials and energy recovery and/or disposal.
