The partnership between Earth911 and E-World Online expands E-World Online’s Manufacturer Interstate Take-back System (MITS), the world’s only comprehensive e-waste take-back solution for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), while educating consumers on how to properly recycle or dispose of electronic waste. Integration of E-World Online’s network of managed drop-off locations and Earth911′s directory of more than 22,000 e-waste recyclers provide consumers with the largest online directory of electronics recyclers ever assembled. By tapping into the power of the Earth911 Recycling Directory, OEMs satisfy regulatory requirements to educate consumers about e-waste recycling while also acquiring tonnage reporting through E-World Online. This innovative alliance solves a complex issue for electronics manufacturers nationwide who are held accountable by state regulations to collect specified amounts of e-waste for recycling as well as demonstrate that e-waste is handled responsibly.
