SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): ERI- the nation’s largest fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition (ITAD) provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company – and awarded the highest Vendor Reputation star rating (4.5 stars) in Compliance Standards LLC’s 2022 ITAD Reputation Ratings – is making its unique services available to Southwest businesses via its newest location in Goodyear, Arizona, near Phoenix.
ERI now maintains nine state-of-the-art, carbon neutral e-waste recycling facilities across the country – each featuring SOC 2 Type I certification and NAID AAA certification (a unique dual standard of responsible data security).
ERI’s industry-leading vendor reputation score is the result of Compliance Standards work gathering feedback from customers of the 31 leading US-based IT Asset Disposition vendors that serve enterprise-class clients in the United States. Several criteria are used to score vendor activity, resulting in an overall reputation star rating, and include:
Portfolio of service offerings (depth and breadth)
Quality of work
Flexibility and customization
Combining the attributes above, ERI was one of only five ITAD service providers in the nation who received the overall 4.5 star rating, exhibiting a significant level of loyalty among its clients.
“The ITAD providers receiving a total star rating of 4.5 or 4 have excelled in one or more of the six attributes used to measure reputation,” said Compliance Standards founder and Chief Analyst David Daoud. “We also congratulate and acknowledge ERI for being the single highest rated vendor in our survey for the attribute of ‘Quality of Work.’”
“Having the highest quality of work rating in the ITAD industry as determined by our own customers is a tremendous honor and something we are incredibly proud of,” said ERI Chairman/CEO John Shegerian. “It’s an honor to be able to help businesses of all sizes and industries achieve their ESG initiatives while protecting their proprietary data through responsible, fully certified ITAD and electronics recycling services performed in-house at carbon neutral facilities. With a steady increase in the need for our industry-leading ITAD and electronic waste recycling services, we continue to grow exponentially and our newest location in Arizona helps us achieve even greater balance as we serve every zip code in the United States, while providing a convenient location to service the robust and growing Southwest market.”
Compliance Standards LLC is the only advisory firm solely dedicated to the IT Asset Disposition sector. Services range from primary and secondary research and understanding buyer and user behavior in the ITAD space, to assessing competition and market conditions.
ERI has been providing comprehensive ITAD and electronic waste recycling services since 2002 and announced the opening of its new Goodyear facility earlier this year– the first recycler in the state of Arizona to be SOC 2, NAID AAA, R2 and BAN e-steward certified. ERI is also the only certified e-steward in Arizona that maintains its own data destruction, glass cleaning, comprehensive shredding and ITAD services in-house. ERI is also a fully carbon neutral organization, distinguishing the company as the world’s first electronic recycling and ITAD company to achieve carbon neutral status at all of its facilities nationwide.
With its longstanding dedication to ESG, ERI is also the recipient of an overall “A” rating (the highest grade ever awarded to a company in ERI’s industry) from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Circulytics tool, which measures progress towards a circular economy.
ERI’s Arizona location is located at 215 N. 143rd Ave., Suite 110, in Goodyear. The facility maintains public receiving hours from Monday to Friday from 8 am to 2 pm.
