Yes

A brief description of steps taken to ensure that e-waste is recycled responsibly, workers’ basic safety is protected, and environmental standards are met:

All of the electronic equipment to be recycled is stored in a separate storage room until the recycling company comes. All of the equipment is handled by the trained staff of the company and is loaded in a tamper-free, locked steel box so that none of the equipment is damaged in transit and therefore will not present a threat to the individuals at the other end. The company either refurbishes the equipment for reuse or recycles it responsibly in order to keep in out of a landfill.
