It’s probably not something you’ve ever given much thought to – where all those old computers and monitors go after they’ve died and left your home or office building. But the 150 environmentally conscious employees from e-Recycling of California can tell you exactly what happens to them. Chances are, a number of them have even landed in their hands. That’s because any electronics that are delivered to Household Hazardous Waste drop-off sites and Waste Management facilities throughout Orange County wind up in the care of e-Recycling’s green team of workers. It’s their job to take apart the items – or, as the company likes to call it, “demanufacture” them. They strip them down to their basic commodity categories – circuit boards, metals, plastics and glass – so that those components can be shipped off for further recycling. The company has three electronics demanufacturing facilities in California, with its newest plant in Irvine at the Great Park.
