Default E-Waste Recycling

Hey guys........I am getting in to E-waste recycling as a means to supplement my income from two part time jobs.........If you have any unwanted, unused, or broken pieces of technology, please e-mail me here. At this point, Richland County, and Sumter, only. The one exception being if you live outside those areas and have a sizable load that is worth my time I will definitely consider it.

Why so many part time jobs? One full time job is pretty cool.

Not really. Are your breaking them down and selling components? Recycling metals from them? Recycling lead glass frit from CRTs? Residential or commercial ewaste? It a makes a difference.

The main difference I'm gonna notice is that I'll be getting rid of around 7 big ass TV's that are just taking up space.

I'd suggest PM'ing him if you're interested. No reason to clutter his thread or get it moved to the PF.

I don't mess with the leaded glass of the t.v.'s.......If I knew of some one in the Columbia area who recycles them, I would prefer they be recycled, not thrown in a landfill......It puts money in my pocket, and takes crap out of a land fill that doesn't need to be there. If you know of a company that buys leaded CRT televisions, I am more than happy to receive that information.......I'll go as far as to say, while I would like the money, I'll gladly take them to someone to recycle for no money at all....I just don't know of any place locally. I get your concerns, and I am more than conscious of them...As I said, if you have information that can help me, please pass it along....I take the circuit boards, and the copper yokes off of the CRT Televisions......And before you ask, no, I do not shatter the tubes. The tube cap comes off easy with a little patience and a small amount of upward force. I don't know all there is to know about e-waste and metal scrapping, but I am certainly willing to learn.

Your welcome, the copper yokes and circuit boards on three of them are sitting in my work shed. Keep me in mind if you come across anything e-waste or scrap metal related.

I indulge my passion(s.) I work for USC on the athletic event staff, and for the Columbia Fireflies, part time, and I just started scrapping metal to fill in the gaps.

I am not sure about there in your area, but I know if my dental office I had someone come in like you are doing and take all my old stuff...equiptment, computers, etc. The attic of my office was full and they came and carried it away. They took everything....it was fantastic for me. I did not have to look at it and I have so much more room. The reason I bring it up is that you could always send out flyers etc through emails to local medical/dental offices for the same thing. I swear dentists (at least) are pack rats and hoarders yet when someone offers to come and take it away for free it is a no brainer! Just an idea for your buisness!

You will laugh but there are actually companies that want all of the crowns etc that have metal in them so that they can scavenge the gold out of them. The drop off jars and pick them up monthly and then send you a check...I think it is really gross and something out of the holocaust (unfortunately) but I guess there is a market there

Thank you, I will certainly look in to that, and I have been meaning to send out some flyers to different businesses. For me destruction, not construction is enjoyable......Any sources of e-waste or scrap metal you can pass my way is much appreciated, yours or someone else's...........Feel free to e-mail me at the address above.
