Due Diligence/End of Life What is Due Diligence? Ensuring a recycler uses environmentally sound recycling practices. What is End of Life? The point at which personal property has reached the end of it’s original purpose. Executive Order requires agencies to “use environmentally sound practices with respect to disposition of agency electronic equipment that has reached the end of its useful life”.
“If a federal agency or facility opts to use READ or UNICOR, they do not need to perform due diligence because the EPA has already conducted due diligence activities for these electronics recyclers to ensure they follow environmentally sound recycling practices.” $$ And our services are FREE!!
UNICOR IS THE SOLUTION Executive Order Donation in lieu of abandonment and destruction Benefits the agency, the tax payer and the environment!
