Reliable Controls has announced a new initiative that it says will help customers minimise waste in the field: eCycle.
The eCycle service allows authorised dealers to send non-repairable Reliable Controls and peripheral partner devices to be disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
“One of the hallmarks of Reliable Controls’ commitment to true building sustainability is its work to minimise waste in the manufacturing process,” says the company. “eCycle will help minimise waste even after products leave the manufacturing floor.”
When electrical and electronic equipment, including building controllers, is disposed of properly, electronic materials are recovered and can be used in new products. But Reliable Controls says programs for proper collection and disposal of e-waste vary widely by region.
“With the new eCycle service, it doesn’t matter where in the world customers are,” says the company. “We will arrange for its authorised dealers to ship non-repairable controllers to a responsible recycling partner for disposal.”
The products Reliable Controls manufactures follow the WEEE, RoHS 2, and R2 directives, which set collection, recycling, and recovery targets for electrical goods and restrict the use of certain hazardous substances.
“The company’s robust in-house recycling program diverts waste and e-waste from landfills and incinerators and helps reduce its environmental impact,” says Reliable Controls.
“With the introduction of eCycle, authorised dealers can assure their customers that the Reliable Controls long-term, better-by-design approach not only provides them with excellent ROI, but also mitigates the negative impact of waste management; our products are recycled responsibly and built to last.”
