ABOUT US

LA’s Only R2 Certified Recycler With a Heart



We are an award-winning social enterprise, offering comprehensive IT asset disposition, data destruction and electronics recycling services. We have handled millions of pounds of electronics from manufacturers, municipalities, and clients in financial services, health care, media, and other compliance-focused industries.

As one of the few R2 (Responsible Recycling), ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and B Corp™ certified companies in the world, we are committed to the highest possible standards for electronics reuse, e-waste recycling, and the destruction of sensitive data. And we do all of this while providing on-the-job training and employment for people who face systemic barriers to work.

Founded in 2011 as Isidore Electronics Recycling, we joined the Homeboy Industries family of social enterprises in 2016, becoming part of the world’s preeminent gang rehabilitation and re-entry program while remaining woman-led and laser focused on superior customer service. We proudly employ people committed to transforming their lives after having been incarcerated or gang-involved.

For every 100,000 pounds we collect,
we create another job.
