Downstream Auditing

As an ISO 14001 certified and OES primary processor, it is of utmost importance to ensure that electronic waste does not enter landfills.  Electro~Shred performs downstream audits to ensure products that are sold to secondary markets are being used in an environmentally sustainable manner.  We conduct this practice, under RQO supervision, to meet the latest Electronics Product Stewardship Canada standards by selecting approved partners that are applying environmentally safe practices to ensure they are not sending electronic waste to landfill or destined for non-OECD countries.  We practice due diligence and conduct background checks on all partners in addition to obtaining certificates of recycling and/or destruction for products received from Electro~Shred.
