Today is an exciting day for us here at Homeboy Recycling. Not only is it America Recycles Day, it is also our one year anniversary of being part of the Homeboy Industries family. Together in the last year we have recycled 1,000,000 lbs. of electronics and grown our team by 8 employees. We are so appreciative of the Homeboy Family and look forward to all the future jobs we will create & electronics we will recycle. Cheers to many more & thank you for all the support we've received so far!
In 1986, when Reverend Gregory Boyle was appointed pastor at Dolores Mission Church in the Boyle Heights neighborhood, he said “there were eight gangs at war wi...th each other.”
Two years later, he and other community members began what would later grow into Homeboy Industries, the world’s largest gang intervention and rehabilitation program. It developed from an initiative to create opportunities for gang members. This was a novel approach to crime, since mass incarcerations were the primary tactic for dealing with gang violence at the time. Read More:

Happy National Reuse Day! The best thing to do with your electronics is reuse them in new ways before recycling to give them a second life. We are dedicated here to reuse as much as we can, whether thats using recycled electronics in our office, repurposing furniture or using recycled items for art projects! Brian is committed to fixing electronics so our customers can reuse them for years to come! (Tomorrow is also national repair day!)
