ReCellular has proudly joined the Device Renewal Forum as an executive board member. We offer the DRF over 20 years of leadership in environmental protection and responsibility. We are committed to develop a common process for refurbished wireless devices that will ensure product quality and performance in secondary markets.
The DRF was created to expand the growth of the renewed wireless devices market by establishing a global and technology-agnostic “gold standard” for renewing, testing and certifying refurbished wireless devices. The DRF’s goal is to ensure that only high-quality and properly functioning devices reenter the marketplace.
By renewing and certifying refurbished wireless devices, the demand for affordable phones can be fulfilled, while preserving the environment, conserving materials, minimizing pollution and eliminating waste. A best practices certification process is vitally important to ensure that these renewed devices meet consumer expectations and won’t disrupt, degrade or harm the performance of wireless networks (e.g., reducing network capacity, precluding roaming, etc.).“Over the past twenty years, we have become an industry leader in the recycling, refurbishing and reselling of cell phones,” said Steve Manning, Chairman, President and CEO of ReCellular. “We were excited to learn about the Device Renewal Forum and immediately pursued the opportunity to take on a leadership role within the DRF. We look forward to helping create a gold standard for renewed devices that will further improve product quality and customer satisfaction, while minimizing toxic waste.”
The DRF is open to companies and organizations worldwide that want to make a positive and significant impact on the environment and future of the wireless industry. Its founding members are Brightstar Corp., eRecyclingCorps, Moduslink, Sprint and the CDG.
