Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronic waste, has once again been named statewide contractor for electronic recycling services by the state of Massachusetts’ Department of Environmental Protection, Operational Services Division. ERI’s east coast headquarters are in Gardner, Massachusetts and is staffed by local Massachusetts residents.
This is the 6th consecutive year that ERI has been awarded the state contract.
The statewide contract follows on the heels of the announcement that ERI has become the first and only recycler of electronic waste in the State of Massachusetts to be qualified as an “E-Steward” by the environmental watchdog group The Basel Action Network (BAN) and the Electronics TakeBack Coalition. The E-Steward program is designed to identify globally responsible electronics recyclers.
“It is a tremendous honor and privilege to have once again been selected from a large field of competition by the State of Massachusetts for the statewide services contract,” said Terry Grady, ERI’s Municipal Services Manager. “Being selected places us on the state’s list of preferred vendors and indicates that we have once again met with its due diligence. Being born and raised in Massachusetts myself, I’m particularly proud to be contributing to the effort to keep toxic e-waste out of the environment, landfills and incinerators in my home state, and making a major effort to have it recycled properly.”
