The B Impact Scores are being compared against all businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment

4th Bin is the only company in New York City picking up electronic waste from local businesses and residents. Their door-to-door, e-waste recycling solution is convenient, simple and inexpensive. In addition, they are a full service firm that provides a range of end of life solutions. These services were built on backgrounds in the technology industry and allow them to understand exactly what their clients require. The result is a finely crafted suite of solutions custom tailored to their client’s specific needs.

Currently, much of the e-waste industry is based on "green washing". Most companies that collect e-waste are either unethically stripping the electronics for their precious metals or illegally exporting the e-waste out of the country. By taking a strong ethical position, 4th Bin hopes to see the e-waste industry become a leader in social, environmental, and economic responsibility.
