e-Cycle CEO Christopher Irion Addresses the Challenges of Building a Mobile Recycling Company

When Christopher Irion launched mobile phone data security and recycling company e-Cycle in 2005, he was confronted with the challenge of managing triple-digit growth while establishing a best-in-class company culture. Over seven years later, Irion continues to deal with his company’s rapid growth and the obstacles it brings. Recently, SmartBusiness spoke with Irion to discuss his secrets on finding the right people to fulfill his passion and overcoming growing pains.

“I feel blessed that [e-Cycle] can grow over 100 percent per year, but as opportunistic as growth is, it’s also a big challenge for us,” says Irion.

Shortly after starting his cell phone recycling business, Irion realized that having a strong management structure would support growth. When a business has only one employee reporting to the CEO, the system will be effective, however when a business grows to an 85 plus member organization, multiple supervisors need to be put in place. Therefore, setting up an efficient managerial infrastructure was key to e-Cycle’s success.

e-Cycle was founded on a passion for the environment, a love of technology and a devotion to charitable giving. Irion’s passion for these three values was able to keep him going during the rough patches and when times got hard. When new business owners are trying to get a business off the ground, they may be working until 2 a.m. every night. They may be anxious about how they will find their next client or how they will make payroll a year down the road. It’s their passion that gets the founders through the bumpy period of establishing a new company. Passion will win over prospective clients because they see the enthusiasm and the drive to meet their needs. Passion will evoke dedication in employees because they share the company vision and will work hard to help accomplish it.

According to Irion, business should narrow down the company’s values and keep them at the core of all that the organization represents. Instill these values in your employees and ensures that all aspects of the company’s culture revolve around these core values. Always keep your client first and do what’s in their best interests. Building this idea at the core of your company culture will always put you ahead of the competition.

e-Cycle to Donate $1 to JDRF for Every Mobile Phone Recycled in Celebration of America Recycles Day and American Diabetes Month

Mobile phone buyback and recycling company encourages businesses to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation by recycling their used mobile devices responsibly in November

Wireless mobile buyback and recycling company e-Cycle LLC has launched an “e-Cycle for Type 1 Diabetes” campaign that will donate $1 to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) for every mobile phone the company purchases or recycles from Nov. 14 through the 23.

According to e-Cycle CEO, Chris Irion, the goal of the promotion is to help raise awareness and support for two causes that are close to his heart—America Recycles Day (Nov. 15) and American Diabetes Month (November). Irion said that he hopes the campaign will encourage organizations to recycle their used mobile devices responsibly in November and also help support a critical research fund dedicated to finding a cure for the debilitating disease.

“As a father of a child suffering with Type 1 Diabetes, I know first hand the difficult challenges that families face in fighting a deadly and life-changing disease, while also trying to maintain a normal and healthy family life,” Irion said. “e-Cycle was founded on three principals: a love of technology, environmental protection, and charitable giving. Our ‘e-Cycle for Type 1 Diabetes’ promotion touches all three of our passions and I hope businesses will join us in our cause.”

How the “e-Cycle for Type 1 Diabetes” promotion works

1.    Businesses and organizations collect their used mobile devices and mail them to e-Cycle using the company’s pre-paid FedEx shipping labels.  Go to www.e-Cycle.com and click on the “Contact Us” link in the upper right-hand section of the homepage, fill out the form and request a label in the “Questions or Comments” field.

2.    e-Cycle will purchase any devices that are reusable and still have market value and recycle all other phones and accessories at no-charge. Companies can elect to have the check written back to them or as a charitable contribution directly to the JDRF. All sensitive data is completely removed from the devices.

3.    e-Cycle will donate $1 for every mobile phone that the company receives from Nov. 14 through 23, 2011.

4.    All mobile devices and accessories that cannot be reused are shredded on site and sent to an EPA-registered metals refinery where the precious materials are reclaimed for reuse in the production of new products.

"I really have positive feelings about the e-Cycle experience. My husband has used a different provider for his iPhone and was very disappointed with the process. After that experience he looked around for another service and that is how we found e-Cycle (internet search). We found e-Cycle to be easy, fast, and the quotes matched what we got. We have since told family and friends about your service. My in-laws have actually used your service since. We would use your service again.” -- Lisa, found e-Cycle while searching the internet.

"Honestly, I was a little skeptical at the start. I was afraid I would send it and not get the $100 promised, but something less. However, everything was very easy and prompt.

"Completely satisfied." -- Mark, found e-Cycle on WV Solid Waste management board.
