It’s almost that time of year, again – spring cleaning time! As you empty out your closets and crawlspace, you’ll probably come across some old computers and accessories, or maybe an out of date cell phone or two. You’ve been shoving them to the back of the closet for the last few years, because you know you can’t just toss them, but you’re not sure what to do with them. Tech Dump can help! Tech Dump accepts all computer-related electronics and accessories and most consumer electronics, such as cell phones and PDAs. The best part is, it’s FREE (CRT monitors have a $15 fee)!
Are you looking for a great way to promote how green your business is? At Tech Dump, we have a great solution for you. You might know us as place where you can recycle electronics, and you might even know that we’ll come to your location and pick them up for you, free of charge. But, did you know that you can also host a Tech Dump event for your company? If your business is located in St. Paul, Minneapolis, or surrounding area, we’d love to help you give back to your community (and to the planet) by working with you to host a Tech Dump. How does it work, you might ask? It’s easy!
Electronics Recycling in Minneapolis has never been easier…Do you have an old computer “Dinosaur” hiding in the corner of your home office? A broken printer as a ridiculously-large doorstop? Or a long-since-dead-cell-phone-paperweight? They’d make fabulous gifts! What?! They don’t sound much like gifts, do they? But what would you say if we told you that any of these can be a gift that keeps on giving? It’s true, because by donating your dinosaurs, you enable non-profit TechDump and parent company JobsFoundation to: Create job opportunities for economically-disadvantaged adults, right here in Hennepin County, MN Refurbish and offer items for reuse to non-profit organizations at deeply-discounted rates Ensure hazardous and toxic components are properly handled within the US Safely reduce the waste stream De-clutter your personal environment and much more! There’s no denying the alarming statistics of the amount of discarded electronics generated each year (see this fascinating infographic from WellHome.com), but the good news is, there’s gold in them-there hills of E-waste… Gold, silver, titanium, copper, aluminum and more! Tech Dump’s environmentally-friendly recovery process can reclaim precious resources such as these from those old dinosaurs, which in turn allows JobsFoundation to invest in people–providing employment, vocational skills and a brighter future. Of course, our first choice is the most eco-friendly–outright reuse, so we’ll give that a try first. One way we do that is by offering items through online auctions, as well as eBay and craigslist sales. But if reuse isn’t feasible, we’ll recover and recycle, safely and right here in the US…once again providing jobs, through our carefully-screened downstream vendors. This great graphic shows our whole electronics recycling process in living color.
Based on the success of our New Brighton Ford Tech Dump, the company has oferred to host another event at their Inver Grove Heights Ford and Lincoln location. The event will be Thursday, March 29th from 3PM-8PM. Thank you Saxon Ford for all your help!
