E-Reuse Services, Inc was established by Sarah Cade and Michael Cheslock in 2017 to provide consulting and collaboration services to the electronics reuse and ITAD industries. We focus our services on implementing efficient and effective data destruction and reuse processes to help businesses maximize the value of the assets coming through their facilities while minimizing their exposure to security risk.
ERS hosts the annual Electronics Reuse Conference (ERC) which brings the industry leaders together to facilitate the exchange of ideas and processes that will improve the businesses in the E-Reuse space. Launched in 2003, ERC provides the opportunity for people around the world working in the areas of electronics refurbishment and repair, assets management, electronics recycling, and digital inclusion to come together to network, build business relationships, discuss best practices, and learn new techniques for refurbishing and recycling electronics efficiently and cost effectively.
In January 2018, ERS launched the E-Reuse Network, a new collaboration forum to better connect device repair businesses, electronics recyclers, PC 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?
After spending 7 years helping her parents run their refurbishing company in Chicago and being the director of the Electronics Reuse Conference, Sarah saw a greater need in the industry. Along with managing the Electronics Reuse Conference and a member network ERS provides data destruction and reuse consulting services to help companies optimize operations.

She is a member of the Responsible Recycling Standard (R2) Technical Advisory Committee, is the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Recycling Industry Operations Standard (RIOS) and is the Chairman of Young Executives Committee for ISRI.
Sarah graduated from Marquette University with a double major in Marketing and Finance.
