Indiana Department of Environmental Management Tours ERI Facility

PLAINFIELD, Ind.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ERI,
the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset
disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction
company, hosted 20 representatives from the Indiana Department of
Environmental Management (IDEM) for a tour of its Indiana facility
earlier this month.

During the tour, ERI shared best practices in e-waste recycling and data
destruction with the IDEM team and demonstrated how ERI’s
state-of-the-art technology works.

ERI maintains eight state-of-the-art e-waste recycling centers,
including the world’s largest e-waste recycling facility, in Plainfield,
Indiana, where millions of pounds of electronic waste are responsibly
recycled each year.

ERI has been providing comprehensive electronic waste recycling services
in Indiana since 2008 and was the first recycler in the state to be R2
and e-stewards certified as well as NAID AAA certified at the highest
level for data destruction. In fact, ERI is the only certified e-steward
in Indiana that maintains its own glass cleaning, comprehensive
shredding and data destruction technology in-house. Last year, ERI
relocated its Indiana location to its current 315,000 square-foot
facility, the largest of its kind in the world.

“It was an honor and a privilege to host the team of IDEM
representatives at our Plainfield facility last week,” said John
Shegerian, ERI’s Co-Founder and Executive Chairman. “More than ever,
people are looking to simply get rid of unwanted or outdated electronics
in an environmentally responsible way that is also safe for digital data
privacy, and we are proud to be leading the charge in those areas here
in Indiana and nationwide.”

disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction
company in the United States. ERI is
