Each piece of equipment will be shredded and/or disassembled and brought to local recycling centers to be reused and reallocated. To protect recyclers from identify theft, any electronic device that contains information, such as hard drives, will be completely shredded, ensuring that sensitive data cannot be retrieved from the recycled material. Differing from most electronic recycling companies, e-Recycle OnUs distributes all of its materials to local centers, refusing to send any components to China.

"Going green is a popular catchphrase these days, but at e-Recycle OnUs we truly believe that taking care of the Earth is not just a fad, it's a responsibility," said Patrick Wilkinson, co-owner and operator at e-Recycle OnUs. "Our mission is really twofold. The first step is to educate people about the dangers of electronic waste and the benefits of proper recycling. The second is to make the means for recycling as accessible and efficient as possible. Rapid advancements in technology have greatly reduced the lifespan of electronic devices and created massive amounts of improperly disposed waste. At e-Recycle OnUs we're proud to be a part of the solution and hope that everyone will join us in that cause."
