What Happens to the Electronics?

ERI, the City of New York's e-cycleNYC partner, is both an e-Stewards and R2/RIOS-certified recycler. These certifications represent the two leading responsible electronics recycling standards. By partnering with ERI, the City of New York ensures that all electronics collected through the e-cycleNYC program will not be landfilled and will be safely recycled in the U.S. ERI also addresses the concern of safe data removal. With the increased prevalence of identity theft and personal information breaches through discarded electronic devices, residents should take measures to remove personal data before disposing of their electronics. As part of its state-of-the-art recycling process, ERI will fully erase all personal data on any electronics it collects. < Back to e-cycleNYC page
