    Name: 2018 Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Electronics Challenge Awards
    Date: March 11, 2019
    Event Description:

    n Monday, March 11, EPA held a ceremony to showcase the innovative work of the 2018 SMM Electronics Challenge Awards winners. Electronics Challenge participants kept nearly 276,000 tons of electronics from being sent to landfills by sending them to third-party certified recyclers. This is equivalent to saving the energy used by nearly 100,000 homes for one year. The Agency's 2018 Electronics Challenge Gold and Silver Tier Awards are going to the following organizations:

    • Gold Tier Awards: Dell, HP, LG, Samsung Electronics America, Sony, Sprint, Staples, TCL and Xerox

       

    • Silver Tier Awards: Best Buy and VIZIO

     

    EPA is also recognizing Dell, Xerox and Best Buy as the Electronics Challenge Champion Award winners for innovating processes and products that use materials in an environmentally responsible way throughout their life cycles. These companies serve as examples in demonstrating environmental, social and economic outcomes for their organizations and the public that go above and beyond the requirements of the Electronics Challenge.
