Extended Producer Responsibility

Our Services for Equipment Manufacturers

Trust Sims Recycling Solutions for Complete Compliance Programs

Sims Recycling Solutions offers comprehensive services to electronic producers to ensure that end-of-life equipment is collected and responsibly processed on a state-by-state basis.

Development of Regional Compliance Strategies

Sims Recycling Solutions is uniquely positioned to help you navigate the complex matrix of state and federal laws and implement electronic recycling programs to meet your take-back requirements for each jurisdiction.

Regulatory Fulfillment Based on Jurisdictional Requirements

Working with regulators in each jurisdiction, Sims will assist you in meeting your regulatory compliance obligations.

Manufacturer Registration and Fee Submittal - Sims can prepare and submit equipment manufacturer registration documents and annual or reporting fees for each jurisdiction as required by law on your behalf.

Comprehensive Collection and Recycling Programs

Using environmentally responsible processes, Sims recycles more than 250 million pounds of end-of-life electronics each year at our multiple locations across North America, so customers can be sure we always have the capacity and the infrastructure necessary to provide you with comprehensive, cost-effective and sustainable collection and recycling programs.

Full Auditing of Our Plants and Downstream Vendors

Sims Recycling Solutions is uniquely positioned to help you navigate the complex matrix of state and federal laws and implement electronic recycling programs to meet your take-back requirements for each jurisdiction. All our facilities have been audited by a third-party and have received R2 certification. Also, all facilities have either received or are in the process of receiving ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications. We are also in the process of becoming e-Stewards certified at all North American locations. In addition to these certifications, all facilities must follow established corporate environmental and safety standards that further protect our customers and employees from the hazards associated with recycling used electronics. All our downstream vendors are contractually required to follow these same standards. Documents that demonstrate Sims or its agents gave audited downstream processors and vendors can be provided to you upon request.

Sampling of Covered Electronic Devices

We can perform sampling of collected covered electronic devices or cooperate with the State as it performs any mandatory brand sampling, allowing you to meet specific State requirements in a streamlined and effective manner.

Ongoing Consultation on Legislative Updates and Changes

Sims uses in-house and third-party legislative analysts to closely monitor evolving electronic waste legislation and regulations in all jurisdictions, enabling us to act on behalf of our customers. Our expertise in the electronic recycling field eases the burden to manufacturers of complying with the complex maze of state by state regulatory requirements associated with extended producer responsibility.
