Some might at first think of Brian Kelley as a modern-day Sanford and Son, turning one man’s electronics trash into another’s treasure.
As computers, Smartphones and other trappings of the 21st century permeate virtually every aspect of life; an issue arises in terms of how best to dispose of outdated devices.
The one place they shouldn’t be is in a dumpster or trash can. In many cases, these machines that in proportion can contain as much metal, plastic and toxic materials as a subcompact car, disposing of a computer properly can be a pretty involved task.
Unless, of course, you live or work in Los Alamos. In that case, all you have to do is call “Azazo Recycling” at 500-0569 and they will drop by free of charge whether you’re resident or business, pick up your old machine and dispose of it properly. Or, you can drop by the business at 3540 Orange Avenue, Room LV-1.
Azazo creator and owner Brian Kelley knows a lot about computers and other electronica, as well as the harm they can do to the environment when they are just tossed in the trash. He sees his business as a kind of salvage yard of the future. That’s the reason he started Azazo Recycling, to make sure as much of Los Alamos’ “e-waste” comes his way instead of the landfill.
