Cell phone service giant outlines plan to recover 100% of it’s e-waste by 2017.
Sprint is getting serious about e-waste recycling. The cell phone service provider has set a goal to recapture 100% of the e-waste produced by its operations by 2017. The goal is one of several outlined in the company’s new Electronics Stewardship Policy, implemented in June of this year.
“This electronics stewardship policy was developed to ensure Sprint reduces the level of environmentally sensitive material in the electronics we design and purchase while managing electronic waste (e-waste) in a manner consistent with Sprint’s overarching social and environmental goals,” the company said via press release.
