One might assume that an environmentally-minded firm such as a plastic recycler would enjoy doing business in deep-blue California.

That assumption is entirely wrong.

California’s largest operator of recycling redemption centers has shut down and laid off 750 employees.

The Mercury News reported Monday that the company, Ontario-based RePlanet, has closed all 284 of its centers.

RePlanet President David Lawrence said the company stopped operating because of increased business costs and falling prices of recycled aluminum and PET plastic.

The move comes three years after RePlanet closed 191 of its recycling centers and laid off almost 300 employees
The $15/per hour wage is only a part of this
