The Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Electronics Challenge encourages electronics manufacturers, brand owners and retailers to strive to send 100 percent of the used electronics they collect from the public, businesses and within their own organizations to third-party certified electronics refurbishers and recyclers, increase transparency and accountability through public posting of electronics collection and recycling data, outstanding performance through awards and recognition, and innovative efforts to create products, policies and processes that use life cycle thinking to achieve environmental sustainability throughout the electronics supply chain. EPA will present awards recognizing companies who have achieved excellence in this challenge.
