ERD's Recycling Initiative
There is an estimated 50 million tons of E-waste produced by the US each year. This is largely due to the speed at which upgrades and new versions are being released in the electronics industry. According to several reports the amount of E-waste could rise by as much as 500 percent over the next decade. At ERD we know that repair and re manufacturing is not only cost efficient but Eco friendly as well. Our decision to re manufacture all types of units offers several benefits, not just to the user but for the environment.
Re manufacturing reduces the exposure to potentially toxic materials such as lead, cadmium and beryllium. Disposing of these contaminants may involve significant risk to individuals and communities.
The environment experiences the greatest impact from E-waste. E-waste takes up vast amounts of space and contributes to the spread of potentially dangerous toxins. These toxins may eventually find their way into the water system and contaminate the water system. By having your unit repaired the ERD way you help reduce the amount of toxins and space waste in the environment.
At ERD we know that re manufacturing electronics not only saves our customers valuable time it also saves them money. Reducing E-waste is another way ERD is making a difference in the electronics industry.
