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 www.bluestarco.com 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.

We Will Always Remember the Heroes

They are to be honored for their service, bravery, and giving back attitude. We welcome them home with pride.

November 11 is Veteran’s Day, a federal holiday. It is a day to honor or memorialize those who have fought in diverse ways to keep us safe. We say thank you, offer a heartfelt handshake, a simple nod, or an honest hug.

Veteran’s Day is a United States holiday that tributes those who have served in the U.S. military. Armistice Day was the original name of the holiday, signifying the anniversary of the end of World War I. In 1954, the name was changed to Veteran’s Day. Armistice Day is still celebrated in various regions and countries around the world.

November 11 was claimed as the official date as World War I, for the most part, ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. This was the day that the armistice with Germany was made.

We will always remember the heroes still living or the ones who gave their lives for our freedom.

Veteran’s Day is now honored each year with elaborate ceremonies, parades, and other events celebrating peace and the return of our courageous men and women who gave of their time, their expertise, and their lives to keep our country free.

We at Blue Star Electronics Say thank you to all that served for our country!

Safe Monitor Disposal

 

What-is-TFT-LCD-Monitor-300x255It’s been with your business since inception, and has become a friend. It’s difficult to say goodbye; however, you need to literally, part with, and dispose of your monitor that is no longer working or has served its purpose. You do know; however, not to dispose of it alongside the road, or in the landfill.

BlueStar Recycling Company helps relieve businesses of their recycling, reclamation, and re-purposing concerns. Along with the ability to accept drop-offs at their facility, BlueStar also picks up your spent electronics – free of charge to you. Your monitors, hard-drives, printers, keyboards, and even wire, all have a safe place to go.

Since your monitor is now considered hazardous waste, it is potentially harmful to humans and the environment. BlueStar highly recommends one of the above options, or attend a recycling event that accepts donations to a non-profit organization.

There are several potential dangers in not disposing of electronics safely: glass shatters, wire cuts and leaves impending infection, and there are hazards in the fumes that could be inhaled. Harmful chemicals could leak into groundwater and infect our drinking water.

Considering the possibility for serious disease and infection, making a conscious effort to dispose of our monitors and other electronic equipment safely and correctly is our responsibility for a safer and healthier planet.
