If you run or are involved in any sort of charity, you’re probably constantly trying to come up with new ways to raise money.
While bake sales, walks or simply asking for donations have their places, an electronic recycling drive can be just as successful, and it’s a more unique way to get people interested and involved while benefiting the environment.
Here at Main Metal Recycling, we always pay top prices for your unwanted electronics. In addition, we offer special pricing for non-profit causes. We’ve been serving the greater Jacksonville, FL area for over 60 years and giving back to the community is a major part of who we are. We’re also actively involved with many local charities ourselves.
An electronics recycling drive is a great idea because just about everyone has some unwanted electronic equipment in their homes, no matter their age, gender or where they live.
With the rapid changes in technology, a cell phone that was state of the art two or three years ago may be collecting dust in a junk drawer now. Or a laptop needing expensive upgrades or repairs that just aren’t worth the price ends up in the back of a closet. Often times, this is simply because people are unsure of how to get rid of these items.
By holding your own charity electronic recycling drive, you take the guess work out of it for them.
Encouraging people to donate those old electronics to your charity benefits everyone. They clear out their drawers and closets and get a tax write off to boot. You bring it to Main Metal Recycling and raise money for your charity.
Main Metal Recycling pays your charity top dollar for everything and makes sure everything is recycled properly. Those who made the donations can rest assured that everything they brought in doesn’t just end up in a landfill.
If you have any questions as to what electronic items we accept, feel free to give us a call. We’ll gladly go over that with you. Some of the electronic equipment we buy may surprise you. And it doesn’t have to be in working order or be current technology either.
Among the lesser-known equipment we accept for recycling are TV cable boxes, networking and communications equipment, RAM sticks and floppy disk drives.
Once we’ve gone over the accepted electronic items with you, you can inform the public and watch the donations start to come in.
The positive publicity and word of mouth that comes from holding an electronics recycling drive can help boost your charity’s reputation by generating good will and leading to more awareness of it.
Let other people’s unwanted electronics make money for your charity. Main Metal Recycling can help. We’ll give you the guidance to hold your electronics recycling drive successfully and offer you our absolute best pricing, given exclusively to charities.
