ERI is the leading recycler of e-waste in the U.S. Founded in 2002, ERI’s Executive Chairman, John Shegerian, believes the company got to where it is today thanks to a strict dedication to its “green DNA & dedication to data protection.”

Shegerian and his team of green industry All-Star employees have labored to keep ERI a totally green organization — from developing and building the world’s largest electronic waste shredder and a fleet of hybrid vehicles used by the sales team, to the electric forklifts used on the shop floor and the precise methodology used to recycle the thousands of tons of electronic waste that pass through the company’s doors daily. Even the furniture used in house is made from recycled materials.

Everyone is part of the solution.
