ecoATM Kiosks Returning to Riverside, California

City Reevaluates the Operation of Instant Self-Service Kiosks for Recycling Smartphones Within City Limits

RIVERSIDE, Calif., Nov. 5, 2019 – ecoATM, a leader in the reCommerce of consumer electronics, is excited to announce its nationwide network of kiosks will expand to the city of Riverside.

After an open and transparent dialogue with ecoATM, Riverside city leaders reconsidered their prior opposition and cleared the way for ecoATM to operate their kiosks that provide Riverside residents with a safe and convenient way to sell their used electronics.

"We’re very pleased that we have been able to work with the city of Riverside to bring ecoATM’s safe, secure and environmentally conscious way of instantly trading-in consumer electronic devices to the residents of Riverside,” said Max Santiago, Senior Director of Law Enforcement Relations at ecoATM. “We continually partner with officials at all levels of law enforcement and government to offer constituents across the country the ability to earn instant payment for their devices, while limiting the amount that end up in landfills.”

Over the past decade, ecoATM’s nationwide network of over 4,250 kiosks have collected over 25 million devices and counting. That’s the equivalent positive impact on the environment as removing over 2,500 cars from the road or planting over four million trees around the world. This success has centered around offering a fair price for pre-owned devices and the convenience of being paid on the spot.

Device pricing is determined by the model, specific condition, memory capacity and value in the second-hand markets. Each device is instantly and carefully evaluated using a unique machine vision system, robotic electrical diagnostics, and artificial intelligence system all within the automated ecoATM kiosk.
