© R2 Solutions Rethinking what we classify as “e-Waste” How broken smart phones are being reused: Screens reused in video doorbells and electronic toys CPUs reused in remote controls & e-readers GPUs reused in digital picture frames Plastics & precious metals recovered and used in new products. A Sustainable & Sensible Solution: Reuse & Recover
© R2 Solutions Recover - “Urban mining” for valuable metals and other materials contained in end-of-life electronics: Recovers times more precious metals than from mined ore. Requires significantly less energy. Leaves smaller environmental footprint.
Manufacturing new toner cartridges requires 400% more energy and resources than re-manufacturing used cartridges to original OEM specs AND saves 3.5 quarts of oil that is needed to produce the plastic for each new cartridge. One ton of recycled cell phones yields $15,000 in precious metals. Recovering aluminum from used electronics saves 90% of the energy it takes to mine new aluminum. © R2 Solutions A Sustainable & Sensible Solution: Reuse & Recover
© R2 Solutions Every One Counts… Responsible recycling starts with YOU. Less than 20% of electronics are safely recycled. Most U.S. households & businesses are storing unwanted electronics that have great potential for good… if properly recycled.
© R2 Solutions Every One Counts… Responsible recycling starts with YOU. Every cell phone, laptop, tablet or computer that is collecting dust in your closet or basement can make a difference. SO RECYCLE THEM!
