GOODYEAR, Ariz., May 09, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ERI, the nation’s largest fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition (ITAD) provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company, announced today that it has officially been named a member of the Arizona Recycling Coalition.
Known as the state’s premier recycling organization, the Arizona Recycling Coalition (AzRC) is dedicated to promoting waste reduction, reuse and recycling efforts through education, outreach, networking and strong partnerships. The AzRC recognizes the continued importance of recycling, and is dedicated to making a difference for the future of Arizona.
The organization is made up of members who have joined from a broad variety of industries and sectors, including private, public, government, non-profit, and education, and it continues to grow throughout the state and the region. In addition to quarterly meetings and an annual conference, the AzRC awards grants and scholarships each year to help promote innovation in reuse, reduction, and recycling.
Earlier this year, due to steadily continued growth, ERI opened its newest recycling facility in Goodyear, Arizona (near Phoenix) marking the company’s 13th operational location and ninth full-scale recycling facility.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to be welcomed as members alongside other great recycling organizations at the Arizona Recycling Coalition,” said ERI’s Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO, John Shegerian. “We’re proud to be bringing carbon neutral, state-of-the-art ITAD and electronics recycling services to the great state of Arizona. It makes perfect sense to team with likeminded organizations in the region with a shared sustainability and circular economy mission.”
“On behalf of the Arizona Recycling Coalition, I would like to welcome ERI to Arizona and to our recycling community,” said Terry Gellenbeck, Chair of the Arizona Recycling Coalition. “We believe that ERI will provide a vital service to the West Valley and the entire state in the world of electronics recycling.”
With its longstanding dedication to ESG, ERI is the recipient of an overall “A” rating (the highest grade ever awarded to a company in ERI’s industry) from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Circulytics tool, which measures progress towards a circular economy.
