Sims Recycling Solutions recently earned the distinction of becoming the first electronics recycling facility on the continent of Africa to achieve R2 certification. The R2 certified site is in Ballito, South Africa.
“This is excellent news,” said Corey Dehmey, executive director of SERI. “The Sims R2 certified facility in Ballito is the leader on the African continent for responsible recycling of electronics. We hope the certification of the Sims facility in Ballito marks a turning point for the entire continent with other facilities following suit to expand access to safe and sustainable reuse and recycling in Africa.”
Sims Recycling Solutions is a global provider of electronics recycling and IT asset disposition (ITAD) services, with twelve R2 certified facilities operating in Saudi Arabia, Singapore, United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa and the United States.
