RePlanet Closes All 284 Locations Leading to 750 Layoffs

 

RePlanet, a recycling company has shut down all 284 of its centers leading to the layoffs of approximately 750 employees. 

The company president said that the falling prices of recycling and increased cost of business made the closure necessary. The closure of these will not only affect the employees, but also those with the very least, including the homeless, who heavily depend on recycling. The closure of Replanet, the largest recycling company in California, as well as others before them means that more recyclable materials will end up in landfills or worse, tossed on the side of the road. 

 

“We regret that these site closures will negatively impact our employees, grocer partners, customers and the recycling community at large,” the company states. “We thank our employees for their hard work and dedication in providing convenient recycling opportunities to our valued customers across the state of California.”

In January 2016, RePlanet closed 191 recycling centers, laying off 278 employees throughout the state.
