e-Cycle Wireless Buyback and Recycling Receives Global Business Excellence Awards for Outstanding Green Initiatives and Services

The leading wireless buyback and recycling company earned the international honors for its commitment to protecting the environment and delivering high-quality services to businesses, organizations and consumers.

e-Cycle LLC, the leading mobile buyback and recycling company, has earned multiple Global Business Excellence Awards for its service offering and its commitment to adhering to the highest standards of environmental responsibility.

The Global Business Excellence Awards, based in the United Kingdom, recognize business excellence across all sectors, including private and public companies as well as charity organizations. The awards are open to organizations of any size, anywhere in the world, and the judges consider nominees from among those that are working smarter to create a business edge.

e-Cycle provides wireless buyback, recycling and data deletion services for a range of customers. While the company’s main focus has been on delivering services to businesses and organizations, it recently launched an online tool that gives consumers an easy option to recycle their devices in the most secure, environmentally responsible and cost-effective manner.

In issuing the outstanding service award, the Global Business Excellence Awards stated, “e-Cycle of Ohio, USA, has developed the perfect solution for the recycling of the millions and millions of discarded wireless mobile devices that are thrown away every year in the U.S. It buys old devices from companies, rebuilds the ones in working order for the third-world market and disposes of the remaining ones in an environmentally-friendly way. By cutting the telecom budget for companies, protecting the environment and helping poorer countries get access to mobile devices, e-Cycle keeps everyone happy. The high quality of the e-Cycle scheme is a wake-up call and a great role model for the recycling industry in other countries.”

In the category of Outstanding Green Initiative, the Global Business Excellence Awards referenced e-Cycle’s approach to environmental responsibility. “By working to the highest technical standards in the recycling of old mobile devices, e-Cycle, based in Ohio, USA, has to be applauded for protecting the planet from pollutants and keeping electronic trash out of landfill sites. It pays companies for their old wireless mobile devices and through a meticulous process, it securely clears data and reconditions working devices for export to third-world countries. Any leftover waste is either shredded or recycled. Absolutely nothing ends up in landfill sites. This is about as green as it gets.”

e-Cycle also protects sensitive information by ensuring no residual data remains on any recycled devices. While mostly focused on enterprises and government wireless recycling solutions, e-Cycle recently launched a user-friendly online buyback tool at http://www.e-Cycle.com where individuals can sell and recycle their used mobile devices for data deletion and reuse.

“We very much appreciate the global recognition that we’ve received for our efforts,” said Christopher Irion, e-Cycle CEO. “It is a testament not only to the value we are bringing to businesses and consumers alike, but also to our commitment to doing so in the most environmentally responsible way.”
