Make Electronics Recycling Convenient



We know people are busy, and at Tech Dump, we want to make electronics recycling as convenient as possible. In addition to our warehouse drop-off and pick-up service, we hold onsite electronics recycling collection events throughout the metro area

Check out our calendar listing to find out where we’ll be and get info on all upcoming public collection events, many of which happen on Saturday mornings.

Interested in hosting an electronics recycling collection event? We’ve successfully held over 400 collection events to date. Read below to learn how we partner with local businesses and organizations to host events as part of a customer appreciation, employee perk, or community action initiative.



What to Expect When You Come to an Event



Review item list

Make sure you've reviewed the items accepted for the specific event you're attending—what is accepted depends on the host or sponsor.

Follow Signs

Drive up and follow the signs—you can stay in your vehicle, and we’ll unload for you.

Prepare Payment

Just like at our warehouse, some items require a fee to recycle and some are free to recycle. Cash or credit card are accepted.

Get Your Receipt

You’ll receive a tax deductible receipt and a grateful smile before you move on your way, light and free from unwanted gadgets!


Relax

We'll bring all of the items back to our warehouse for proper recycling and data destruction.

Host an Event


With so many collection events under our belts, we’ve created a solid process to make hosting a minimal time commitment. Here’s what you can do:



Discuss

We'll start with the goals of your event with you. Then our team will recommend a specific type of event, which can be public or private, staffed or self-led. We will discuss associated hosting fees, and then work to identify the ideal date and time for the most successful event.

Market

We’ll provide customized marketing materials if desired to communicate which items will be collected. If you’re hosting a public event, we will also help promote it.

Do it!

If the event is staffed, our team will show up onsite in our box truck with the necessary supplies for a smooth and safe event, ready to assist customers with superior service. After the event, the truck will head directly back to our secure facility for responsible recycling and data destruction.

Case Summary

A local, Minneapolis-based company wanted to offer their 4,000+ employees a tangible and practical event to celebrate Earth Day. They decided to partner with us to host a company-wide collection event in their parking lot during the main morning hours that employees arrive onsite. Their Green Team and Community Action Team joined the fun, with over 33,000 pounds of recycled electronics collected. This event also fueled a full day of work for 17 of Tech Dump’s trainees. Now that’s a successful event!
