Electronic Manufacturers Recycling Management Company, LLC (MRM), a leading provider of electronics waste recycling management services to manufacturers, announced a new partnership with Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s largest recycler of electronic waste. The agreement expands MRM’s recycling infrastructure into Massachusetts.
Under the program, end-of-life electronics from Panasonic, Sharp, and Toshiba can be dropped off by residents at ERI’s Gardner location at no charge to the consumer. In addition, MRM will pay for the recycling of the three brands in selected municipalities. Rebates will be offered to ERI-serviced municipalities who do not charge their residents a fee for recycling. MRM will work with ERI and pay for the recycling of the brands in Bellingham, Bourne, Framingham, Gardner, New Bedford, and Dorchester.
“MRM is pleased to work with ERI in the state of Massachusetts to provide consumers with convenient recycling opportunities,” said David Thompson, MRM President. “MRM continues to focus on enhancing the environmental sustainability of individual company brands and product offerings through convenient, environmentally sound, and efficient recycling.”
“It’s an honor and a privilege to be working with MRM in the state of Massachusetts,” said ERI CEO John Shegerian. “MRM is doing a great job providing responsible electronic recycling options all over the country—and it is exciting to watch them grow. We are very proud to be handling the electronic recycling for them in portions of Massachusetts and look forward to other future partnering opportunities in other parts of the country. The bottom line is that together we are making it easier for people to get rid of unwanted electronics while keeping hazardous materials out of landfills. We work every day to make sure we are setting a sterling example of sustainability and environmental responsibility. At ERI, it’s in our DNA to be green, and we strongly believe it’s what recycling electronics should be all about.”
