LifeSpan Achieves E-Stewards Certification at Four U.S. Locations

Assures e-Waste Won’t be Dumped in Developing Countries

Newton, Massachusetts. March 05, 2013. LifeSpan, a company specializing in Information Technology Asset Disposition (ITAD), secure data destruction, IT remarketing, and electronics recycling, announced today that their facilities in Denver, Tampa, Omaha and San Diego have achieved e-Stewards® Certification. This accomplishment strengthens LifeSpan’s position as a leader in responsible recycling services, environmental protection and international legal compliance.

e-Stewards is a globally accredited, third-party audited certification program developed by the environmental watchdog group Basel Action Network (BAN) with support from other environmental groups and industry leaders. It is designed to protect workers and prevent global dumping of toxic e-waste on developing countries, and to prevent the use of prison labor and local municipal landfills and incinerators for managing toxic e-wastes.  LifeSpan chose to pursue e-Stewards Certification because customers recognize the importance of environmental stewardship and rely on third-party certifications to assure that their ITAD vendors meet the highest standards.

This achievement reflects LifeSpan’s long-term commitment to globally responsible electronics recycling,” said Jim Puckett, Executive Director of BAN.

LifeSpan services large, multi-location, national enterprises such as financial institutions, retailers, defense contractors and health care companies. LifeSpan’s commitment to environmental compliance and risk minimization for their client is reflected in their attainment of e-Stewards Certification. 

e-Stewards is a market driven and a market leading standard for electronics recycling,” said Dag Adamson, President and founder of LifeSpan. “With the help from the e-Stewards Enterprise program, our customers encouraged us to round out our certification portfolio. We are now among the select few companies in the ITAD industry that has proof of our depth in compliance and sustainability while at the same time, driving the best value for our customers.

LifeSpan joins the group of electronics recyclers that can show you where all of their e-waste goes, and that it is processed safely and responsibly,” said Jim Puckett. “They will continually be required to pass the test of being among the most socially and environmentally responsible recyclers on earth. We welcome them.
