From the nation’s largest cities to its smaller, more rural communities, ERI builds customized electronics recycling programs to meet residents’ unique needs.

ERI works one-on-one with local governments to design, set-up and execute electronics collection programs that address community requirements and government capabilities, as well as local and federal regulations.

With more than 10 years of experience, ERI is an expert in the responsible recycling of electronic devices, paying the utmost attention to security concerns and environmental safety. Whether hosting a recycling collection event for residents or disposing of government-issued electronic devices, ERI is committed to the highest industry standards for data destruction and environmental health and safety.

When an electronic device arrives at an ERI facility, it is immediately registered and assigned a serial number, enabling ERI and you to track your device through its end-of-life using our industry-first barcode tracking system, MyTrackTech. Following registration, the device’s data is wiped in accordance with Department of Defense and National Institute of Standards and Technology protocol to ensure any sensitive government or resident information is completely destroyed.

Electronics devices are then refurbished, sorted for parts or sent to ERI’s state-of-the art shredders to be broken down into raw commodities, which are sent directly to our downstream partners to be recycled or repurposed.
