At the end of (W)right On’s bi-weekly team meetings, we give shoutouts to our colleagues for their great work. At our latest team meeting, the team decided to also identify one client deserving of a shoutout. After all, we can’t be successful for our clients if they don’t collaborate with us. When clients provide a clear vision and business objectives, we can then develop appropriate strategies to produce desired outcomes.
For March 2012, (W)right On would like to recognize E-World Online President Cindy Erie. E-World Online administers comprehensive e-waste take-back programs across the country for leading consumer electronics manufacturers. In 2011, E-World collected over 45 million pounds of e-waste through its Manufacturers Interstate Takeback System. E-waste accounts for 2-5 percent of municipal solid waste streams, and according to the U.S. EPA, only 18 percent of e-waste is recycled.
The (W)right On team would like to thank Cindy for her leadership, industry knowledge and responsiveness.
As the co-founder and president of E-World Recyclers in Vista, which is a leading recycler of electronic scrap, and the parent company to E-World Online, Erie has received far greater recognitions than our client shoutout. She was named the 2011 Small Business Person of the Year by the San Diego district office of the Small Business Administration. Still, the (W)right On team would like to show our appreciation to Erie for being so great to work with.

Thank you, Cindy Erie and E-World Online!
