FAIR LAWN, NJ--(Marketwire - Oct 20, 2011) - AnythingIT Inc., celebrating its 20th year of business as one of the most experienced reuse/recyclers of electronic waste, announced today that it has successfully obtained certifications for both Responsible Recycling Practices for Electronics Recyclers (R2) certification and the ISO 14001:2004 certification.

"We are extremely proud to be achieving these important industry standard certifications which enable us to continue to support both our Public Sector and Commercial partners and clients," stated Mr. Ted Knapp, Head of Environmental Compliance & Security for AnythingIT, Inc.

R2 is a voluntary standard which includes principles and practices for electronics recyclers in disassembling or reclaiming used electronics equipment.
