R2 Recycling
with Cobalt

Cobalt was among the earliest electronics recyclers to pursue R2 Certification. Out of the ten provisions covered by R2, the ones we think make the most difference to our clients are those that hold us accountable for prioritizing reuse and recovery, vetting our downstream vendors, and ensuring total data destruction or sanitization.

Choosing an R2 Certified electronics facility gives you greater control of your liability and risks to your business, data, and brand. We know you don’t want to have to worry where your business’s electronic equipment ends up once you are done using it, or about picking through all your inventory to figure out where the value is. Work with an R2 Certified recycler to get peace of mind that all of your risks are covered and you’ll never be surprised by fines or unflattering press coverage because your assets wound up in the wrong hands
