↑Fallout: The Roleplaying Game Rulebook p.243: "Little remains recording the founding and history of US Robotics Disposal. Only its facilities remain. However, some has been guessed or worked out through application of general robotics knowledge.
Robots in the 2050s and 2060s were highly complex machines brimming with toxic plastics, heavy metals, caustic chemicals, and even nuclear components. As such, when a robot broke down, became obsolete, or got destroyed in an industrial accident or act of war, they couldn’t simply be dropped in the nearest dumpster for transport to a landfill.
Instead, they required careful dismantling, then disposal of their individual components according to exacting protocols. Some autonomous units resisted this process, often vigorously or even with deadly force. Not every company was equipped to take on such a task.
US Robotics Disposal formed in 2053 to fill that niche, profiting on two fronts. They charged a high fee for the dismantling, then recycled the raw materials for sale to robot manufacturers and other industrial clients. It was a win-win for US Robotics Disposal, and a general boon for the industry.
There are no records of what happened to the corporation or its leadership during and after the War."
