T3 Office Recycling Solutions, which is based in Rancho Cordova, California, has been awarded recertification under the Responsible Recycling (R2:2013) international standard. Concurrently, T3 also has been recertified under ISO 14001:2004 for Environmental Management Systems as well as under OHSAS 18001:2007 for Occupational Health and Safety. The new certifications are all effective from May 2, 2016.
The R2 Responsible Recycling Standard establishes a uniform set of processes, safety protocols and documentation requirements for organizations that repair and recycle electronic materials. Organizations that are certified under the R2 standard undergo rigorous independent audits to ensure quality, safety and transparency of their recycling processes. T3 is the only R2:2013 certified recycling company on the West coast whose focus materials are new unused/surplus printer supplies and data storage media products as well as used supplies.
“We take our commitment to responsibly process the materials we acquire very seriously,” said Buzz Raley, President and CEO. “With our Full Circle Solution Program along with our Responsible Recycling R2:2013 Certification, our clients can be assured that their materials are being handled by an accountable company with a clean downstream.”
Since its founding in 1997, T3 Office Recycling Solutions has been a pioneer in California’s efforts to promote full-circle recycling solutions for printer and media supplies. T3 provides a new revenue source for organizations with surplus unused supplies such as OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) toner and ink cartridges, drums, copier supplies, printer parts and data storage media. Surplus materials are commonly generated because they are no longer needed due to printer fleet or other equipment refresh, overstock, expiration or through liquidation or bankruptcy. When T3 acquires the surplus supplies they are redistributed to a network of dealers, wholesalers and other organizations with equipment in need of the same supplies. In addition to the financial benefits to the organizations served by T3, surplus supplies and materials that normally would be destined for a landfill are put to good use.
T3 Office Recycling Solutions is California’s leading recycler of new and used toner cartridge, ink cartridge and data storage media supplies. The company works with private businesses, educational institutions, state and federal government agencies and non-profit organizations to develop customized revenue-generating and environmentally-friendly recycling solutions. The company is certified in California as a Small Business (No. 30811). The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors named T3 The Sustainable Business of the Year in 2013.
