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 4th.

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.
