E-World Online Helps Manufacturers Reduce Costs and Stabilizes Funding Stream for Processors
E-Waste Recycling Program a Model of Success as EPR Regulatory Year Ends
December 27, 2012 --
VISTA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/27/12 -- E-World Online, a leading provider of electronics recycling solutions, announced today that it has already met the 2012 extended producer responsibility (EPR) e-waste weight requirements for its electronics manufacturer clients in 10 states while supporting continuous funding for free and convenient electronics recycling in states regulating e-waste collection. As the final states' regulatory year-end approaches, E-World will maintain its perfect record for achieving weight requirements for clients in all EPR regulated states through its proprietary solution for consumer electronics manufacturers, the Manufacturer Interstate Take-back System (MITS).
E-World's MITS has the unique ability to regulate the flow of e-waste to the benefit of manufacturer clients, consumers and networked processors through its advanced software. MITS ensures neither a surplus nor shortfall in e-waste collection for OEMs which supports a steady flow of funding for processors in addition to keeping program costs down. With the goal of e-waste EPR regulation being free and convenient recycling for consumers, the MITS program is an exemplary OEM-friendly e-waste program.
To align with their corporate social responsibility guidelines while avoiding fines, penalties and potential lost revenue, the country's leading manufacturers have selected E-World's MITS as the most cost effective solution for compliance within the 25 U.S. states currently regulating e-waste collection. Due to the size of MITS' network of recyclers that allows for the lowest processing prices coupled with customizable software, Sony Electronics Inc., Acer America Corp., ViewSonic and other manufacturers enjoy cost savings and worry-free compliance that allows them to focus on innovation and growing their core business.
"For many manufacturers, especially smaller ones, deciding whether or not to internally manage various e-waste policies is a business decision," said CEO Bob Erie. "They ask themselves whether the administrative costs associated with meeting all the requirements are greater than outsourcing to programs like ours. MITS provides a cost effective and environmentally compliant solution which drastically reduces each corporation's administrative costs."
Over the last three years, E-World has achieved steady growth and will have collected 120 million pounds of e-waste by 2013.
