Environmental Integrity

Our integrity shows in the licenses we hold.

Anyone can say their recycling and recovery is environmentally sound. But do they have the license and certifications to back it up? We do.

Belmont Trading Company holds the most rigorous environmental licenses and certifications issued by federal and local governments in countries around the world. We use an independent safety and environmental consulting firm to perform regular auditing of our facilities. This ensures that our electronics asset management and value recovery services are conducted in accordance to the most up-to-date standards. In some cases, Belmont Trading Company exceeds the environmental guidelines.
