Get Started With ERC

At ERC, we focus on providing innovative waste recycling services to our clients through a comprehensive process that focuses on sustainability solutions that protect our environment. It works like this:

Confidential Waste Management

Companies don’t want their proprietary or obsolete products falling into the wrong hands. Competitors may use these items to create similar products, or criminals may take them to the black market. Improper disposal of obsolete or expired products has the potential to harm your business and customers. Proper management for the destruction of these products is essential.

ERC offers confidential waste disposal services for companies disposing of paper and products that contain or consist of obsolete or expired products to protect your interests. This includes:

  • Expired pharmaceutical drugs
  • Proprietary manufactured chemicals or products
  • Obsolete or expired products

ERC has worked with a range of companies, helping them dispose of their confidential waste in a way that protects them while also upholding our standards of sustainability.


Keeping You Compliant Throughout the Process

One of ERC’s many benefits is our focus on maintaining compliance in our operations. Put your worries away knowing your waste is being recycled and disposed of in a safe and compliant manner. We maintain accreditation and compliance with several regulatory entities, including:

    Once we process your waste, you can relax and focus on the business of your company. On top of our dedication to regulatory compliance, we also thoroughly document our waste pickup, transportation, and recycling/disposal, so you never have to worry about a lack of documentation for your own compliance purposes.
