Electronic Recyclers International, Inc.
With a mission to safeguard organizations, people and the environment, ERI is the largest fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company in the United States, and possibly the world.
Certified to de-manufacture, recycle, and refurbish every type of electronic device in an environmentally responsible manner, ERI today has the capacity to process more than a billion pounds of electronic waste annually at its eight certified locations, serving every zip code in the United States.
But how did we get here?
Founded in 2002, ERI's unique blend of "green DNA” and cybersecurity focus allows us to safeguard the aforementioned organizations, people, and the environment completely with respect to data security, data privacy, and environmental issues related to IT and electronics asset disposition.
Although there are thousands of companies in the United States that do some aspect of electronics recycling, ERI recycles an estimated 5% of all e-waste recycled in the United States -- through the largest, most efficient shredding system in North America.
Unlike competitors focused more on sales than compliance, ERI has a robust compliance and regulatory affairs team that is larger than our team of sales professionals. We continue to be focused on growth, but at ERI, we know the best way to increase our business is to effectively and responsibly protect yours.
ERI is committed to providing safeguards for our clients, our employees, and the environment. We are, in fact, the first company in the world to hold NAID AAA, R2, and e-Stewards certifications. What that means to you is that we are certified at the highest level possible for data destruction, sanitization, and environmentally responsible recycling. It also means that we are subject to periodic and unannounced audits by third-parties and clients totaling over 60 audits per year across our eight facilities – an audit per week on average! We don't just say we are compliant, we consistently prove it at a level unmatched by any competitor.
