AUBURN — eWaste Recycling Solutions announces that two of its electronics recycling facilities in Auburn and Lewiston have achieved R2/RIOS certification.

That certification demonstrates to customers, employees and the public that a facility is operating at the highest standards for quality production, environmental protections, health and safety.

eWaste Recycling Solutions provides disassembly, consolidation and transportation services for recycling and disposal of electronic devices. According to Rick Dumas, founder and chief executive officer, it is the first company headquartered in Maine to achieve R2/RIOS certification.

R2/RIOS is the combination of two strict industry standards that provides recyclers an efficient management system while meeting U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards. To earn the certification, eWaste Recycling Solutions underwent a third-party audit to verify its compliance with quality, environmental, health and safety standards.
