Bankrupt Competitor

the largest fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition
provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company in the

customers of now-bankrupt electronics recycler ECS Refining.

"In the wake of ECS' recent bankruptcy, we at ERI want all of ECS'
former clients to know that we have the bandwidth to seamlessly take on
any of their electronics recycling, ITAD and sustainability needs," said
ERI Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, John Shegerian. "ERI is, in fact,
a natural fit for former customers of ECS. We are the only company in
the United States that can provide all the services that were offered by
ECS (and then some), plus, two of our eight facilities are strategically
located within 30 minutes of ECS' former processing locations in
California and Texas."

Shegerian also noted that ERI is dual-certified by both R2 and Basel
Action Network's E-Stewards to de-manufacture, recycle and refurbish
every type of electronic waste in an environmentally responsible manner,
as was ECS. Plus, taking the standards to the next level, he added that,
"ERI is also AAA certified by NAID at all of its facilities."

California under SB20. Shegerian noted, "ERI is the largest electronics
recycler approved in California's SB20 program, therefore, any entities
needing service within the scope of SB20, under law, must work with an
SB20 approved recycler. We are here to help! Unfortunately since ECS'

clients with SB20 requirements. The only entities licensed to manage
electronic devices in California within the scope of SB20 must be

Walmart, Yolo County and Zynga.

"At ERI, our mission is to safeguard organizations, people and the
environment," added Shegerian. "One way we safeguard companies is to
inform them of sustainable solutions and opportunities during times of
unfortunate circumstances. We know how important it is to businesses of
all sizes to be able to partner with a responsible, sustainable, and
fully certified electronics recycler and data destruction company they
