Electronic Recycling at Letter Rip

A new component of Friday's Letter Rip is electronics recycling. If you've got an old television, monitor, even an old appliance... you can dispose of it thanks to Blue Star Recyclers.

Bill Morris runs the company which employs 15 people.

Bill says, "For every 20,000 pounds of material we bring in, we create a new job."

Nick demonstrates how easy it is to grind a hard drive. It's the one device that stores information on every transaction you've ever completed on your computer.

Bill says, "It's a lot easier to let us pull out the drive and put it in the shredder. It turns it into a mulch that can't be read."

Friday, May 6th from 10 am to 2 pm these guys will be downtown with us at Kiowa & Wahsatch... taking your unwanteds and recycling them ... keeping them out of landfills.
