Cal State Fresno Electronic Waste Collection Event Rounds up Nearly 70,000 Pounds of Electronic Junk

FRESNO, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Jan. 25, 2006 -- Electronic Recyclers of America (ERA) announced today that its first community electronic waste collection weekend in partnership with California State University, Fresno has resulted in the collection of 69,982 pounds of electronic waste.


Within the course of two days, hundreds of local residents, businesses and students arrived at the University with their unwanted and/or non-functioning computer monitors, computers, printers, TVs and other electronic waste. It is estimated that nearly 2000 items in all were dropped off to arrive at the almost 70,000 pound total.

"We are thrilled with the success of this event and excited about forging this partnership with Fresno State in general," said John S. Shegerian, ERA's President and CEO. "It is a true testament to the need of an organized electronic waste drop-off in the Central Valley. Fresno State is the first university in the state approved to collect electronic waste from the community. The people and businesses of Central California and the surrounding environment can be assured that all items brought in will be recycled in the most environmentally sound manner possible at ERA's Fresno facility."

The accumulation of e-waste is a growing problem that has gained national attention. In California alone, hundreds of thousands of computers, monitors, televisions and other electronic items are replaced every year. Electronic waste contains materials that are valuable but can be hazardous if not disposed of properly. Electronic recycling helps to protect the environment and create new jobs.

Electronic Recyclers of America (ERA) is the largest recycler of electronic waste in the State of California. With headquarters in Fresno and San Diego, ERA is licensed to collect, de-manufacture, recycle and crush the cathode ray tubes found in computer monitors, televisions and other types of video equipment.
