"R2 Practices" is shorthand for the Responsible Recycling Practices for Use in Accredited Certification Programs for Electronics Recyclers. The R2 Practices set forth requirements relating to environmental, health, safety, and security aspects of electronics recycling.
R2 also requires e-recyclers to assure that more toxic material streams are managed safely and responsibly by downstream vendors-all the way to final disposition. It also prohibits e-recyclers and their downstream vendors from exporting these more toxic materials to countries that have enacted laws making their import illegal.
