NEW YORK, June 21, 2021 – 4THBIN, a leading e-recycler and data destruction company, announces today the appointment of 4THBIN’s CEO, Paul Kirsch, to e-Stewards’ Leadership Council, effective January 2022.   

e-Stewards is the industry’s gold standard that recognizes electronics recyclers that adhere to the most stringent environmental and socially responsible practices. 4THBIN was New York City’s first company to be certified by e-Stewards and has received Ecovadis’ platinum rating, placing 4THBIN in the top 1% of their most responsible companies.

“Electronic waste continues to be the fastest-growing waste stream, yet the recycling rates remain disappointingly low,” said Mr. Kirsch. “The opportunity to have a big impact is real, and I am excited to join e-Stewards Leadership Council in their mission to drive awareness of, and motivate action against, this unprecedented challenge,” added Kirsch.

With this appointment, Mr. Kirsch will join a diverse multi-stakeholder community that ranges from non-profits, small businesses to multi-million-dollar transnational companies united around developing and promoting responsible electronics recycling reuse best practices worldwide.

The e-Stewards Leadership Council serves as an advisory body, making recommendations to the e-Stewards program in areas including international expansion, the e-Stewards Standard development, environmental and social policy, as well as technical matters related to electronics recycling and reuse.

Happy Halloween!

To some, the spookiest part of Halloween may be the ghosts or vampires, but to us, it’s the plastic waste that is left behind. Nearly 2,000 tonnes of plastic waste are generated yearly from Halloween scraps, the equivalent of 83 million water bottles. Similar to electronic waste, the scraps that are left behind from Halloween will end up in a landfill - posing major hazards to the environment and humanity.
