Invest in Our Impact
The US produces the most e-waste in the world, yet only about 25% is recycled. That's where Tech Dump comes in: we reduce e-waste in our landfills, advocate for reusing valuable materials, and change the lives of unemployed adults through our job training program.
We serve up to 100 trainees per year, who are adults facing barriers to employment. While working with us, trainees gain valuable work skills that translate into diverse job options, including customer service, electronics de-manufacturing, logistics, sales, and marketing.
We work hard to maximize our primarily self-funded business model to make a local impact. For every $1 spent on a trainee that completes the program, there is a ROI of $9.24. Our environmental ROI is $4.23 for every $1 that goes to the organization.
In Fall 2018, we doubled our space to greatly expand our work readiness and environmental impact. Please consider supporting us as we grow our program and increase our impact in the Twin Cities. You can sign-up for monthly support or contribute a one-time gift through our GiveMN page. Thanks for making a difference in our community.
We are proving that everything and everyone has value. We are pairing an amazing pool of untapped talent with a need to recycle and refurbish e-waste, which is the fastest growing waste stream in the world.
