Why Recycle Through Surplus Exchange


The Surplus Exchange is ISO 14001:2004 compliant. We are also the first facility in the state of Missouri officially compliant with the e-Stewards Standard for Responsible Recycling and Reuse of Electronic Equipment, a standard set by the Basel Action Network, the world’s only organization focused on confronting the global environmental injustice of toxic trade and its devastating impacts. We are also a Microsoft registered refurbisher, so you know we won’t resell your software and data.
