NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The current issue (September) of American Recycler, a news magazine covering breaking issues in the world of recycling, features a cover feature about Electronic Recyclers International’s partnership with New York City on the region’s new residential recycling program, “e-cycleNYC.”
“…to get this kind of credibility from New York, the greatest city on the planet, by picking us out of many other vendors, is beyond an honor. It’s such an important deal because it’s such a complicated city in terms of recycling.”
Described in the article as “a model of what could become a core for recycling electronics in urban areas,” the e-cycleNYC program was created by the city, in partnership with Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronic waste. The e-cycleNYC program is one of several green initiatives ERI and New York City are developing for residents. The program will enable area apartment buildings the opportunity to participate in ongoing free electronic waste pick up and recycling services.
ERI Chairman and CEO, John Shegerian, who is interviewed in the article, is quoted as stating, “…to get this kind of credibility from New York, the greatest city on the planet, by picking us out of many other vendors, is beyond an honor. It’s such an important deal because it’s such a complicated city in terms of recycling.”
The article goes into greater depth with Shegerian regarding the intricacies of New York’s recycling needs, comparing the city to the different set of needs required by the City of Los Angeles, where ERI also plays a key role in the recycling of electronics.
