Fresno’s Electronic Recyclers International announced it has earned an AAA certification for data destruction from the National Association for Information Destruction.
The certification comes after a comprehensive scheduled and unannounced audit program monitoring the destruction of information on paper, printed media, micromedia and computer hard drives.
John S. Shegerian, chairman and CEO of ERI, said the company is proud to earn the certification, which reconfirms its commitment to data destruction.
“With current technological innovations, there is very fast turnover when it comes to business and private computers, laptops, cell phones, and other consumer electronic devices,” Shegerian said in a statement. “Proper destruction of private digital data has become a crucially important issue. NAID certification shows we are at the forefront of that issue.”
Shegerian added that all ERI locations are undergoing the AAA certification process. The company processes more than 275 million pounds of electronic waste annually at eight locations across the U.S.
