Indiana Department of Environmental Management Tours ERI Facility

April 16, 2019

PLAINFIELD, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 16, 2019--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 “More than ever, people are looking to simply get rid of unwanted or outdated electronics in an environmentally responsible way that is also safe for digital data privacy, and we are proud to be leading the charge in those areas here in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.”

ERI is the largest fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company in the United States. ERI is certified at the highest level by all leading environmental and data security oversight organizations to de-manufacture, recycle, and refurbish every type of electronic device in an environmentally responsible manner. ERI 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. ERI’s mission is to protect organizations, people and the environment. For more information about e-waste recycling and ERI, call 1-800-ERI-DIRECT or visit https://eridirect.com .
