Infinite Electronics Recycling (IER), Weirton, West Virginia, has partnered with The Electronics Reuse & Recycling Alliance (TERRA), Nashville, Tennessee, to provide electronics recycling options for residents in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. By joining TERRA and its mail-in recycling program called Done with IT, IER will help to drive awareness about the environmental and health effects of electronic waste and allow consumers to sustainably recycle their used electronics, TERRA reports in a news release announcing the partnership. IER also provides secure data destruction services to more than 13.4 million residents in 140 counties from a certified recycling facility in Weirton.
“Only certified recyclers with either an R2 or e-Stewards certification like IER can be trusted to securely and sustainably process used electronics,” says Steven Napoli, founder of TERRA. “They adhere to rigorous standards and make continuous investments in best-practices to mitigate the dangers to human health and the environment associated with the improper disposal of e-waste.”
“Providing easy and affordable access to electronics recycling was an opportunity we were eager to support,” says Dick Weaver, CEO of IER. “We are excited to help TERRA build its nationwide network of certified recyclers to provide these same services to businesses and consumer coast to coast.”
According to TERRA, with the addition of IER, Done with IT now serves more than 20.4 million residents of Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and West Virginia.
“We expect Done with IT will continue to grow to serve a population of more than 100 million by the end of the year,” Napoli adds.
