e-Cycle Wireless Buyback and Recycling Named Top Central Ohio Workplace for 2013

Industry leader receives Top Workplaces Award at a time of record growth, as the company introduces new service offerings and undertakes expansion initiatives in the region.

e-Cycle LLC, the leading mobile buyback and recycling company, has been selected as a top place to work by Columbus CEO Magazine and 10TV Top Workplaces.

The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback and are recognized for having exceptional workplace environments. The nomination process for the award began in late 2012 and includes conducting employee surveys at the nominees’ places of business in order to determine finalists. e-Cycle was among only 50 Central Ohio companies to earn the honor. All the recipients were recognized at an awards reception on Thursday, April 18, at COSI.

“What makes us most proud of this recognition is the fact that it came from our employees, the very people who contribute to our success day in and day out,” said Christopher Irion, e-Cycle CEO. “We’ve worked hard to create a culture in which our employees can thrive in their careers and feel empowered to provide solutions that help our customers address the challenges of responsible and cost-effective mobile recycling.”

The Top Workplaces Award comes at a time of significant growth and expansion for e-Cycle, which in late 2012 moved its corporate offices from Hilliard to New Albany. The move enabled e-Cycle to expand its Hilliard location, where it maintains its mobile recycling operations. It also follows what have been several years of record growth, both in terms of revenue and its workforce. Today, the company has more than 100 employees.

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 last month launched an online tool that gives consumers an easy option to recycle their devices in the most secure, environmentally responsible and cost-effective manner.

People can access the user-friendly buyback tool at http://www.e-Cycle.com where they can sell their used mobile devices for data deletion and recycling. e-Cycle purchases more than 150 types of mobile phones and tablets, issuing a check or PayPal payment to consumers within 48 hours of receiving the device, the fastest turnaround for payment in the mobile recycling industry.
