|Segment Reporting [Abstract]
We operate within targeted markets through two reportable segments: retail and recycling. The retail segment is comprised of income generated through our ApplianceSmart stores, which includes appliance sales and byproduct revenues from collected appliances. The recycling segment includes all fees charged and costs incurred for collecting, recycling and installing appliances for utilities and other customers. The recycling segment also includes byproduct revenue, which is primarily generated through the recycling of appliances and includes all revenues from AAP. The nature of products, services and customers for both segments varies significantly. As such, the segments are managed separately. Our Chief Executive Officer has been identified as the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”). The CODM evaluates performance and allocates resources based on sales and income from operations of each segment. Income from operations represents revenues less cost of revenues and operating expenses, including certain allocated selling, general and administrative costs. There are no inter-segment sales or transfers.
The decrease in recycling segment revenues for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, presented in the following table was the result of a decrease in revenues related to appliance replacement programs, recycling programs and a significant decline in byproduct revenues that resulted from decreases in the prices of the byproducts that we sell.
The following tables present our segment information for fiscal years 2016 and 2015:
Certain items have been reclassified from prior year for presentation with no effect to net income.
