Seattle, WA. August 14, 2019. ServerMonkey announces today that it has earned e-Stewards® Certification in Houston, TX. e-Stewards is considered to be the international “gold standard” for the recycling and refurbishing of used electronics. ServerMonkey provides IT Asset Disposition & Recycling in addition to the provision of enterprise hardware, data center services, and more.
“We are delighted to see ServerMonkey join the ranks of industry leaders that are e-Stewards Certified Recyclers,” said BAN and e-Stewards founder Jim Puckett. “This certification assures clients that ServerMonkey is taking necessary steps to prevent global e-waste pollution and ensure a truly responsible circular economy.”
The e-Stewards Initiative is the world’s first third-party audited, accredited international certification program for electronics recyclers that prohibits the export of e-waste to developing countries. It also bars child and coerced labor, assures safe working conditions for laborers, and requires stringent data security measures for chain-of-custody and data destruction.
“As a company that recycles and sells refurbished IT hardware, and provides IT Asset Disposition services, ServerMonkey is pleased to announce that we have achieved e-Stewards certification, demonstrating our commitment to promoting safe and effective recovery and reuse of IT equipment,” says ServerMonkey Vice President of Sales, Bashar Hindi. “ServerMonkey has always been committed to conducting business in an environmentally responsible and socially conscious manner, but any vendor can make that claim,” he says. “This certification reassures our customers we meet the highest standards for responsible recycling.”
