MRM Companies Support EPA Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) CHallenge
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the Sustainable Materials Management (SSM) Electronics Challenge on September 20, 2012. This is a cooperative, voluntary program for electronics manufacturers and retailers that aligns them with two basic EPA goals: (1) improve management of used electronics by increasing the amount of used electronics that are collected and recycled through certified third-party refurbishers and recyclers; and, (2) increase transparency and accountability through public posting of electronics collection and recycling data.
Panasonic Corporation of North America and Sharp Electronics Corporation, two of the companies that founded MRM, are participating in the EPAís SMM Challenge and look forward to assisting the EPA in meeting national goals for eWaste recycling.
