4th Bin is a local New York City and Westchester-based asset manager, e-Stewards recycler, collector, and refurbisher of electronic waste (e-waste). 4th Bin was launched by a group of Information Technology professionals to create a simple, inexpensive and convenient way for businesses and residents to recycle their old electronics – with an emphasis on ethical logistics and disposal.
Calling on their past struggles, the founders of 4th Bin created a door-to-door collection system that addresses the cost, transportation and transparency issues businesses and residents face when dealing with e-waste. 4th Bin was created to be affordable, convenient and completely transparent on all levels. 4th Bin is the only company providing door to door e-waste pickup service for both NYC and Westchester businesses and residents.
4th Bin has committed to working with The Basel Action Network’s (BAN) e-Steward standard and only uses e-Steward certified partners to process it’s electronic waste and is a proud member of the Coalition for American Electronics Recycling (CAER).
Since beginning full operation in February 2010, 4th Bin has collected over 1,300,000 lbs. of e-waste and recycled over 1,000,000 lbs. In addition, 4th Bin has been leading the way in educating and advising businesses and consumers as to the dangers of electronic waste, legislation and ethical sustainability practices.
