TOPEKA, KS — One Topeka company helped residents recycle their old electronics Saturday at Shuler Education Center.
United Computer Disposal, a company that started as a class project at Washburn University, took old working and non-working electronics, like cell phones, computers and televisions, for free to recycle them properly.
The company will also give some of the working electronics to families in need.
“We donate to needy families and a lot of people have electronics sitting around, not being used anymore, possibly even broken or whatever else, so what we do is take those off their hands so they have more space to do what they need to and we also get to donate to the families that need it,” said Jesse Mack, with United Computer Disposal.
United Computer Disposal takes the electronics they cannot give to other families, strips them and takes them to the scrap yard or recycling plant.
