SIMS Electronics Recycling: The true story behind electronics waste recycling (March 9, 2011)

Cindy Coutts
President, SIMS Recycling Solutions

DATE: Wednesday March 9, 2011, 5:00 – 6:30 pm
LOCATION: 55 University Ave. (Street Level), Toronto

Is your company contributing to the dumping of e-waste in the developing world? How can you be sure? What are the right questions to ask? Be sure that a green supply chain doesn’t end with a PR disaster.

Participate in a candid discussion about policy, life cycle management, and the risks your company faces from the way you manage your e-waste. Learn how to protect your corporate brand from the negative PR resulting from data theft and your indirect participation in illegal dumping.

SIMS is a leader that goes beyond the regulations. Cindy will explain the challenges in the industry, what happens to waste that isn’t properly handled, how to ask the right questions when sourcing a waste handler and how SIMS’ new state of the art technology is returning material that was once destined for landfill back into the supply chain. Learn how a vision to reduce environmental and social harm has established SIMS as a leader in the electronics waste handling industry.
