Computer Recyclers of America opens new facility
Fresno, CA— Computer Recyclers
of America (CRA) formally opened California’s largest and
most advanced e-waste recycling facility in Fresno on November
On hand for the grand opening
event were CRA president and CEO John Shegerian, Fresno Mayor
Alan Autry, former Secretary of State Bill Jones, San Francisco
Giants pitching coaches Mark Gardner and Dave Righetti, and various
members of the Fresno business, University, and non-profit communities.
CRA is the only electronic recycling
facility in the state that de-manufactures, recycles and crushes
the cathode ray tubes found in computer monitors, televisions
and other types of video equipment. Its revolutionary cathode
ray tube crushers provide the capability of processing more than
1500 units per hour.
The facility is capable of processing
up to 5 million pounds of e-waste per month and provides central
California with its first facility for dropping off unwanted televisions
and computer monitors free-of-charge.
The facility is approved by the
California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) and the California
Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) as an authorized
outlet and all activities within are monitored by a state-of-the-art
surveillance and security camera system.
All electronic components are
100% recycled and easily traceable with the use of CRA’s
unique bar coded reports, which CRA provides, along with Certificates
of Assured Destruction (COAD) that insure all materials are being
disposed of properly, and remove liability from customers.
