One of the most powerful instruments we have as individuals and corporations is the ability to educate and reach out to the community.
We believe is a duty that all of us should have, we can all do our part in making our communities better.
As a company, we are currently involved in numerous outreach programs and educational initiatives around our community. We are always looking for more opportunities and partnerships.
b-1) eSmart Recycling Awareness Program
The concept is specially designed to serve as an awareness building initiative, perfect to start creating electronic recycling programs in schools, churches, colleges, non-profits, etc. It has the potential to upgrade to a bigger, more functional option for more specialized recycling programs.

b-2) eSmart Recycling Drives.
When it comes to awareness building opportunities and behavior change processes, we want to be on top of the game.
That is why we are always looking for partners to host electronic recycling drives. We want to let the community know that there are options available to properly dispose of electronics in a safe, secure and convenient way.

There are many different ways to fundraise for non-profit and charitable organizations. Electronic Recycling is definitely one of them.
If your church, charitable organization, non-profit or foundation is looking for new and creative ways of raising money, create awareness and get the entire community involved… Then we want to talk to you!

b-4) Speaking engagements.
We love talking and meeting people, especially if we are talking about what we love doing. There is a lot of information in this industry, some information is fun and really neat to learn, but some of it just needs to be heard.
Apart from being actively involved with groups like Alligator Zone, Junior Achievement, GATI, Eureka Factory and other community related groups, we are always looking to share our knowledge and get our message across.
We can visit your school, speak at your next event or share with your team members, employees and staff about all of the different actions we can take to create a better and greener environment.

The learning opportunities we can have through de-construction are unbelievable. In order to appreciate and understand the value of electronics and their components, sometimes you just HAVE TO KNOW what is inside of them.
This year we hosted the kid’s de-construction zone at the Gulf Coast MakerCon and had the opportunity to host more than 50 eager to learn kids. They went through dozens of household electronics and had an “inside” look at the components of our every day tech gadgets.
It was such a great success that we are working on taking the show on the road.

We also had the opportunity to partner with Alligator Zone and present our company and model to kids and their parents. It is amazing to realize that sometimes kids understand important social issues better than grown-ups.
Do you have a captive audience that is also motivated about learning and making a difference? Please contact us and schedule a visit, de-construction zone or a speaking engagement.

b-6) The MAKER community
After a few brainstorming sessions with a friend a collaborator Chuck Stephens and also with the friends of Eureka Factory. We have realized that the maker community is huge, thriving and in need of support. There are wonderful organizations that are providing safe and creative spaces for this community to grow. eSmart Recycling feels that there is moral obligation to continue to foster and encourage this amazing community. That is why we are partnering up with Makers and Robotic teams in our area to serve as a community liaison and also, as a source of salvaged material, funding and support.

b-7) Drop- off locations in the community
We are on our way to reaching our goal of becoming the largest privately owned company with the most amount of electronic drop-off locations in the state.
