About E-Waste Systems:
Headquartered in London, where e-waste regulations are the most stringent in the world, EWSI aims to be a leading provider of e-waste related services in key jurisdictions globally. Blumberg Associates estimates the sector at $ 55B annually as legislation mandates that e-waste can no longer be landfilled. OEM’s, retailers and users are increasingly responsible for end-of-life management of e-waste, while Corporate Social Responsibility demands highly compliant, professional solution providers. The industry is also highly fragmented and EWSI considers these elements as an attractive environment for its buy, build, and upgrade strategy. Visit www.ewastesystems.com.
