The electronics recycling company Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR) has announced the acquisition of Electronic Recycling Solutions (ERS), an electronics recycling firm based in Salt Lake City. Since forming in 2008, ERS, which is listed as a disabled veteran-owned small business, has achieved a host of certifications, including R2:2013, ISO: 9001, ISO: 14001 and OHSAS: 18001, and has been named a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher.
