Help Support the Children

Shepherd’s Gate, a non-profit organization for emotionally, and physically scarred women and children, is a true blessing to families. Not supported by the state or government agencies, the 501(c) 3 charity is sustained only by the generous donations provided by churches, corporations, foundations, other organizations, and individuals. Shepherd’s Gate runs on love, compassion, and good-will from the community.

Blue Star Company Inc., located in Brentwood, CA. is a premier recycling company, which is well-known for their involvement in the community for their recycling, reclaiming, and reuse efforts. Blue Star Company Inc. serves both the residential and commercial communities to help alleviate toxins from our air and landfills by collecting old electronics that have outlived their usefulness.

Blue Star Company Inc., with an affinity to help keep our environment cleaner for the next generation, has found a partner in Shepherd’s Gate. Finding a desire to help children, the professionals at Blue Star felt a need to donate toys to help support the children affected by the stress and depression that accompany their families.

The gifts of new toys can help children feel more comfortable faster and become more resilient in their new circumstances.

Earth Day 2016

Earth-Day-2015Earth Day, April 22nd, is not only a movement that was started in 1970 by John McConnell; it also promises to be the making of history in 2016. Earth Day was created as a way for us to give back to our Mother Earth by planting trees, cleaning up America, and saving on energy and fuels. In other words, we began the movement to solve environmental issues. Many programs, festivals, and groups gather to beautify our parks, clean up beaches, walk or bike to work, and raise awareness of our environment.

This year, history will be made as President Barack Obama, and Chinese President Xi Jinping sign the Paris Climate Agreement on Earth Day. The ceremony highlights the signing of this agreement which aims to reduce global warming.

As we look ahead, it is our responsibility to restore, give back and clean up. It is our Earth and we can afford, for at least one day, to indulge her.  We owe her that much.

By taking time to do our part, we all win. Just becoming aware alone will prove to be a significant move toward developing good habits in recycling, and how to take care of our future. Teaching our children next weekend, will help them adopt our good behavior when they inherit our legacy.

Blue Star Electronic Recycling is an active participant each year by hosting a myriad of free recycling drop-off events for corporations. The e-waste is properly recycled locally and in a secure manner.

(Please remember also that Blue Star Electronic Recycling provides electronic waste pickups for businesses and corporations throughout the year.)

There are many activities in your area that will be devoted to learning more about how we can help on a daily basis. Picking up trash in a public setting, and planting a tree or flowers will help our parks thrive. By learning more about the vehicles we drive and how riding a bike is healthy for us in more than one way, we give back to the future of our children.

Earth Day 2016 is a weekend filled with many opportunities to get involved and have fun with your family, while learning and engaging in those events that are smart for our environment, as well as our health overall.

Happy Holidays from Blue Star Recycling Company!

Holidays-2560x1810         The holidays are upon us and we celebrate! With bright, colorful lights, images

and sayings of the season, and a giving attitude, we align ourselves with what’s

right in the world.

At this time of year especially, we look to how we can help one another.  We

stretch ourselves in ways that we never imagined to give of our time, our

goodwill, and to offer a diverse array of resources.

As we open our hearts this Christmastime, be aware of amazing ways to reach

out. As you do, you will experience huge benefits in the spirit of the season. Our

purposes here may be different; however, there is no difference in the way that

we give back to those around us – and to those who have touched our lives in

various ways.

Recycling, reclaiming, and reissuing are also important ways in which we give

back. Do so with enthusiasm for our planet.

As we relinquish our deep-rooted technology that once brought us bliss, it is now

time for new experiences, opportunities, and tools to make our lives and those of

others more joyful and productive. By acknowledging that our good deeds help

our population; we allow our thoughts and deeds to turn toward sharing,

celebrating, and creating a new existence for ourselves and those around us.

We take this opportunity to thank our customers for their tremendous generosity

this year.

No matter how you say it…Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays – we, at Blue Star

Recycling Company, wish you and yours a very special holiday season.

Memorial Day…A Time to be Grateful

Memorial Day…the day when we give thanks to our men and women who gave the definitive cost…their lives. We are free today because of their bravery, and selflessness.

We, at BlueStar Recycling, encourage you to thank the heroes; those who are serving and fighting to preserve our nation and keep us safe. What they do is so important and deserves our gratitude.

Memorial Day is much more than a holiday where we attend barbeques, fairs, and picnics. We stop and consider all of our finest who gave on the battlefields and elsewhere. War is not only gaged on the frontlines. It is fought in our cities, and on the homefront.

Teach and read to your children about who defends our country, who the people are who dress up in fatigues and proudly walk our streets to keep a vigil so that we can remain confident.

Celebrate what independence means to you. Celebrate for the children who get to meet their dads for the first time. Celebrate for the wives or husbands who come home and are able to find jobs. Celebrate what you have because of what has taken place in foreign lands and at home. Remember the uniform…remember that it stands for freedom, justice and our America!

Mother’s Day…A Day of Her Own.

Mother’s Day is an entire 24 hours set apart to honor mothers. We celebrate that special woman who, in most cases, gave us life. She is the one who raised us, gave us meaning, integrity, and a place in this world. We celebrate motherhood in general, the gift of maternal nurturing, bonding, and the inspiration that moms play in our culture.

Our relationship with our mothers is one like no other! As we look back, we may remember the delicious aroma of dinner, baking cookies, reading stories, learning how to ride a bike, and receiving a kiss or a hug goodnight. Mom was the Brownie leader, the one who helped with school projects, the one who braided our hair, paid for the barber, and held our hand across the street. She also said NO…a lot! We know that while she only did that for our own good; in our own minds…it wasn’t!

Over the years, the role of mom has evolved to more than dinner on the table, or team mom for soccer, and Little League. Mom now is often the dad too. She might wear many hats in a family, and be the one who “brings home the bacon.” The new American family might have mom at the helm as Mom 2.0.

While Mother’s Day is not a federal holiday, some businesses close, while some flourish with record-breaking sales. Always celebrated on a Sunday, celebrations around the Bay Area remind us that our attention, for all the things that she has done and continues to do for us, be turned toward mom. During the year, it is the most popular day for telephone calls.

Mother’s Day celebrations began in the U.S. around the 20th century. With a few intervals over the years, the heartfelt “holiday” is now well-regarded with hand-made gifts, flowers, a meal out, a BBQ, a movie, a greeting card, and/or a phone call. This Sunday, May 10 – we honor those we call “Mom!

Happy Mother’s Day!


The strength of Earth Day is to dispose of electronics responsibly

Earth-Day-2015Earth Day was the genius idea of Senator Gaylord Nelson, in 1970. Earth Day now draws millions of participants to a day and weekend dedicated to celebrating the earth’s environment. Many celebrate Earth Day by spending time outdoors planting trees, cleaning up in parks, going on nature walks, and learning more about our precious Earth and how we can help preserve her beauty and resources.

With April 22 designated as Mother Earth Day, activities are happening all around the Bay Area, where parents and children have the opportunity to immerse themselves in fun deeds that celebrate the joy that our planet Earth brings to us.

One way that we, at BlueStar Electronics, encourage the strength of Earth Day is to dispose of electronics responsibly. Dumping technology just anywhere is totally unacceptable, which is why we inspire others to bring in or schedule a pickup where we can claim your spent electronic waste and in many cases, turn it around for reuse.

BlueStar Electronics is your electronic waste company dedicated to Mother Earth and saving her for future generations. Many are uneducated and do not realize the ramifications of disposing waste improperly. By visiting our website at we explain to and educate our customers about how we help clean up the environment, and save Earths’ citizens from illnesses due to toxins that are associated with illegal and unethical dumping of electronics.

Our planet deserves a positive environmental impact, and it’s up to us to bring it!

Curbside Recycling is it Safe?

curb side ewasteHaving unquestionable faith in the curbside electronic pickups can be challenging. When we have spent technology that dearly needs to be recycled, reclaimed, or reused, it’s our responsibility to seek out a good recycling company who can be trusted to dispose them properly. When we place our belongings on the curb, do we know what happens to them? Will they be portioned off responsibly, or sold to the highest bidder in another country?
Often it’s hard enough to give up our technology; doing the right thing to help the environment. We do become attached to that monitor, cellphone, laptop, or tablet, and we often give them nicknames. It’s for our own good that we replace what has outlived its usefulness; however, we need to find a responsible recycler – one who is accountable for reselling the parts to the right handler once we have learned to let go.
BlueStar Recycling Company, in Hayward, CA is an experienced recycler that we can depend on for disposing of our electronics correctly. We can be assured that once the components, glass, wire, metal, and plastics have all been separated, a trusted third party may get involved in the sale of those parts to build new, current, and often cutting-edge technology that will help make our lives easier and more efficient.
Before you place your electronics on the curb, please consider a person-to-person pick up or drop-off with BlueStar Recycling Company – a responsible recycle, reuse, reclaim, and resale enterprise.

Feed a School; Impact the Environment

Schools eat up the recycling-for-a-cause events since they are hurting for funds. They are eager donate electronic waste to help raise the money that is taken away through budget cuts, and mandated programs that deplete school funding.

Often, events are held in tandem with other weekend events; car washes, mini-carnivals, Shred trucks, etc. Students also help raise the money needed for programs, bus trips, new electronics, uniforms, instruments, and more.

A recycling company (BlueStar) is called to setup and collect monitors, hard drives, TVs, laptops, old cellphones, printers, computers from the public who drive them in.  Teachers, students, and parents happily show up to help cut wire, unload electronics from vehicles, collect money (usually an employee from Blue Star does this), and general set-up and clean-up after the event is over.

The students send out E-vites online, post on Facebook, Tweet, send home fliers with other students, and ask their parents to help, or advertise at their work…anything to get the word out. Students often earn community service points – a graduation requirement at many schools. They work hard, and look forward to the end of day rewards (find out the cut for their class goal).

When this type of event is encouraged, students learn so much about finding their way. They find a way to get what they need by putting a little of themselves out there. Helping the environment is a great lesson in appreciating what they have, what their future can hold, and how their efforts impact others.
