VIZIO, Inc., has announced its Silver Tier award distinction from the  U.S. Environmental Protection Agency  (EPA) which recognizes the brand's consistent contributions and values in sustainable electronics recycling practices for a cleaner tomorrow. The EPA presented VIZIO with the award at today's Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Electronics Challenge Awards Ceremony held at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The Silver Tier award recognizes VIZIO's commitment and adherence to the goals of EPA's Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Electronics Challenge, including VIZIO's sustainability and public disclosure of its innovative recycling management practices. VIZIO continued to send 100 percent of collected used electronics to certified recyclers or refurbishers backed by a third-party certification program.

"VIZIO's commitment to the sustainable management of electronics demonstrates that successful business practices and environmental stewardship can go hand-in-hand," says Andrew Wheeler, acting administrator, EPA. "I congratulate VIZIO for their leadership and commitment to recycle electronics responsibly."
