Many consumers are unsure of the proper way to dispose of electronics. They know they shouldn’t just throw items in the trash because of data security and environmental concerns but they don’t know where to go.
Flanders, NJ (PRWEB) April 9, 2011
New Jersey residents and small businesses now have more options to easily recycle their unwanted electronic devices. AERC Recycling Solutions and E-World Online, LLC have partnered to offer free electronics recycling services to residents and businesses with fifty or less employees in New Jersey. While AERC has been offering various solutions for individuals and small businesses throughout the United States, this partnership offers additional options for New Jersey residents and small businesses with the added benefit of recycling electronics at no cost.
This partnership is a result of the recent New Jersey legislation banning electronics from landfills and requiring manufacturers to subsidize the recycling of electronics. E-World Online, LLC founded the Manufacturers Interstate Takeback System (MITS) to help manufactures comply with state legislations requiring manufactures to provide recycling options for electronics.
“AERC is very pleased to be offering free recycling options for the residents and consumers of New Jersey,” said Lindsay Landmesser, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, AERC Recycling Solutions. “Many consumers are unsure of the proper way to dispose of electronics. They know they shouldn’t just throw items in the trash because of data security and environmental concerns but they don’t know where to go. By bringing Electronic Waste to AERC’s collection events or GreenZone drop off facilities, people will have peace of mind in knowing that their electronics will be safely recycled.”
AERC has developed a network of organizations in New Jersey which will be utilized as Electronics Recycling Collection Event hosts and collection sites. This network of locations include self-storage facilities, landfills, credit unions, car dealerships, thrift stores and cartridge computer stores, allowing consumers many options to drop off their end-of-life electronics. Individuals and small businesses with fifty or less employees in the state of New Jersey are invited to participate in these events. Organizations with more than fifty employees or with large quantities of Electronic Waste should contact AERC to schedule a pick-up of materials.
