If your current recycler doesn't hold these standards,
your data may not be secure.

Please note, not all facilities hold the same certifications.
Please review below for further details.


Revolution is 3rd party audited annually and accredited to the R2:2013 Standard at our Head Office Facility. Shift Recycling is accredited to the R2:2013 at the Destruction Centre. All material from our Collection Facilities flow to either our Head Office or Destruction Centres. R2 is an international electronics recycling standard focused on data security, environmental compliance and occupational health and safety. R2 is quickly becoming THE global standard for electronics recyclers. If your current recycler isn’t R2:2013 certified, you have to ask: Why not?

Revolution is a proud member of NAID-Canada, the national association representing companies that specialize in secure information and document destruction.

Revolution is audited annually by a third party auditor and accredited to the ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 Standards at our Head Office Facility. These internationally recognized standards provide comfort to our customers knowing that occupational health and safety / environmental risks are actively managed and accounted for.

The Electronics Recycling Standard 2010 is the minimum level of compliance your electronics recycler should meet. Maintained by the Recycler Qualification Office (RQO), The ERS 2010 is the minimum standard required by each of Canada’s provincial recycling programs and ensures that Revolution (via Shift) recycles your electronics to the highest Canadian standard.

Revolution is proud to partner with and be authorized as a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher to install Microsoft operating systems on refurbished assets, maximizing their value and overall return for our customers while ensuring complete data security.


Don’t just use any company to pick-up and “recycle” your IT assets. In addition to Revolution’s investment and adherence to internationally recognized certifications, Revolution Recycling has the necessary insurance to cover risks specific to the recycling of electronics. We hold the following policies.

  • Cyber Liability Insurance
  • Commercial General Liability Insurance
  • Commercial Vehicle Operators Insurance
  • Environmental Impairment Liability Insurance

This type of insurance is expensive to hold and speaks to a larger commitment to ensuring your business is secure. We understand your concerns about data leakage and have taken steps to address them holistically. Make sure your “recycler” cares as much as we do.
