Discarded electronics are a major source of hazardous waste and are rapidly filling up waste dumps everywhere. Also, the environmental cost to produce new electronics from new materials is prohibitive.
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) November 11, 2016
Green Tree Recycling, in Irvine, California, has announced its purchase of Trinity Recyclers, Laguna Niguel, CA. This purchase positions Green Tree for rapid growth in the competitive 'green industry' of electronics recycling.
Asked about the acquisition, company founder and CEO, Hamid Gholam said, "We're encouraged by the increased sensitivity that local Orange County businesses have regarding recycling and sustainability. We're seeing an increasing number of our customers adopting 'green office' business practices.' Founded in 2014, Green Tree Recycling refurbishes and recycle used and out-dated electronics with pick-ups in Orange, San Diego, Riverside, LA and San Bernardino counties. The purchase of Trinity Recyclers gives the firm greater operations efficiencies and a broader customer base.
"Discarded electronics are a major source of hazardous waste and are rapidly filling up waste dumps everywhere," Gholam said. "Also, the environmental cost to produce new electronics from new materials is prohibitive. Every pound of finished electronic device requires 10,000 pounds of raw materials and that still doesn't include the major energy requirements to mine metals, distribute parts or run factories. It's a new day, and we're seeing more of our customers responding to the climate crisis in ways that are also good for our business!"
