Janesville, WI (February 14, 2012) –Universal Recycling Technologies, LLC (URT) received three significant certifications this month at its Dover, New Hampshire and Fort Worth, Texas processing facilities: ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, and certification to the e-Stewards® Standard for Responsible Recycling and Reuse of Electronic Equipment.
“These certifications validate our continuing efforts to recycle ethically, operate responsibly and consistently provide a superior customer experience. Our goal has always been to work hard for our customers, continually improving what we do to better serve their needs,” said URT President Jim Cornwell.

In June 2011, URT was the eleventh recycling company in the nation to achieve an e-Stewards® certification at its Janesville, Wisconsin headquarters and processing facilities.

The e-Stewards Certification program, created by the Basel Action Network (, formally recognizes electronics recyclers that adhere to the highest environmentally and socially responsible practices when recovering materials from electronic scrap. It is the only electronics recycling standard that bans all exports of hazardous electronic waste to developing countries and prohibits the use of prison labor and dumping in local landfills. The accredited third-party audited certification program is supported by the U.S. EPA and endorsed by Greenpeace USA, the Sierra Club, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the Electronics TakeBack Coalition and 68 other environmental organizations.

The ISO 14001:2004 standard recognizes the consistent application and success of a company’s environmental health and safety management system. The ISO 9001:2008 standard takes this a step further, certifying the overall company quality management system. Both standards were developed by the International Organizations for Standardization.
