Fast Track Communications is leading the industry by announcing an ‘E-waste’ partnership with Sims Recycling Solutions!
The IT industry – especially integrators – is notorious for generating E-waste and very few have a policy around sustainable disposal of discarded technology. SRS representatives tell us that we are among the first in our industry to formalise our E Waste disposal process.
We at Fast Track are very aware of our moral and ethical obligations around sustainable and environmentally sound disposal practices for ‘E-waste’, most of which is generated by our client projects (such as phone systems and handsets, cables, PC’s, Monitors etc) . To support our internal policy we have partnered with Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) to guarantee the minimum impact on our environment is achieved using their advanced recycling facilities. A certificate of recycling, including the carbon saved by this practice is issued to the client for a very nominal cost so we can all reduce our impact on landfill. For a detailed outline of how Sims Recycling reduces and recycles ‘E Waste’ please ask us or go to their website.
