TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Electronics make up 70 percent of the toxic waste in landfills, but one company is working to prevent it in Tampa Bay.
Many people have a drawer full of old wires and electronic parts but aren’t able to properly dispose of the old equipment.
eSmart Recycling in Tampa sees value in your outdated items where you may see trash.
The company finds creative ways to monetize old parts and generate revenue from the material to support kid’s technology labs in the Tampa Bay community.
Making technology accessible to all kids is a main goal for the eSmart Recycling team.
You can recycle old electronics at the Shorecrest Preparatory School or at eSmart Recycling at 7818 A Causeway Blvd.
