E-Reuse Services, Inc was established by Sarah Kim and Michael Cheslock in 2017 to provide consulting and training services to electronics recyclers, refurbishers and ITADs, as well as organizations establishing IT asset disposition policy and procedure. We perform timely, affordable internal audits, offer live (in-person and web-based) training along with online courses, partner with solution-providers to better address evolving industry requirements, and help organizations achieve lock-step compliance and maximum recovery value of retiring assets. Our clients’ individual objectives are our top priority, and we apply our experience and relationships in order to help meet them.
ERS believes that collaboration is paramount in our industry, so we’re proud to host the annual Electronics Reuse Conference: A networking and education-focused industry event with an expansive, E-Reuse-centric agenda. ERS also recently launched the E-Reuse Network: A collaboration forum to better connect device repair businesses, electronics recyclers, refurbishers and ITADs with the vendors that supply them with the tools and services they need to run their businesses.
So, who are these guys?
