Blue Star Electronics (E-Waste recycling)

Convenient Recycling Pickup in Your Area

We all have it, both at work and at home. Schools have it, churches have it, your favorite restaurant, the local gas station, and even the library.

With technology comes e-waste. When our electronics have seen their last days, or have just become outdated, what we do with them is important. What happens when dumping them in a landfill is not an option?

Fortunately for us, Blue Star Company, a premier, authorized e-waste recycler and handler will dispose of our electronics for us. Conveniently, and for free, they will pick up our old technology in the Bay Area, so that we can rest easy knowing that the part we’ve played in recycling for good, has been validated.

Blue Star Company, once notified by email, will send a vehicle to pick up your discards and deliver them safely to their reclamation center for separation, proper destruction and disposal. Some items are reused, reclaimed or recycled. Other items such as hard drives with sensitive data are always physically destroyed for your safety. It is Blue Star’s promise to you that their destruction services are among the very best and your old data will be destroyed, never to be used against you.

End-of-life Recycling

End-of-life recycling by itself isn’t sufficient for most organizations phasing out IT equipment. Many organizations require detailed asset reporting that typical end-of-life electronics recyclers do not provide. Also, a great deal of the IT assets which organizations are phasing out are not necessarily obsolete, and can be converted into a significant revenue stream when resold into secondary markets.

Here at Blue Star Electronics, LLC ( Blue Star Recycling ) we provide to our clients a detailed reporting, Certificate of Destruction, pictures and more. A monthly reports with revenue sharing. We work with small companies to Large. We service the entire Bay Area and more! For more information please contact us at Sales@bluestarco.com or www.bluestarco.com

Make Money By Recycling

To reach or surpass your diversion goal, we encourage you to support the three R’s-“Reduce, Re-use,
and Recycle”. “Reducing” and “Re-using” materials is the cost efficient strategy to waste management.
What’s left after reduction and reuse takes place, is recyclable material. Recycling has become a huge
business unto itself! The logistics of what type of garbage and how it’s is diverted and dispersed has
opened up myriad opportunities for a profitable business!
SOUND BITE: Russ Collar, Owner of “The Original Hot Logs”. “This whole uh, process started, from
the fact that we’ve got, uh, wax produce boxes in mass, been going to landfills for years, nobody knew
what to do with them, a couple of vintners came up with the idea of how to chip ‘em up and turn them
into a firelog and, I saw the process, liked the whole process, um, and stepped in and said, yeah, it’s a
good idea, let’s see what we could do. Holiday Market actually was very instrumental from the
beginning seeing that they could save money by getting the wax boxes out of their waste stream, they
saved, they estimated 125 or150 thousand a year leaving the tipping fees and hauling waste costs and
it made it very feasible for them to deliver the waste product to us and pick up firelogs and take them
back to the store to make it very close loop, total transformation product-taking something out of the
waste stream, out of the landfill, and turning it into a real value added, real, uh, quality product.”
When you divert your waste, the recycling industry cycles billions of dollars back into California’s
economy thus adding jobs, sales, and other economic activity that are generated when those materials
stay in circulation!
SOUND BITE: Roberto M. Gomez, Facility manager at BFI, Fresno. “Recycling makes economic
sense. One is we divert material from the landfill. Two is we use less raw material, and third is we
employ people to sort the recyclable material from the landfill.”
Economically and environmentally-sound manufacturing businesses are making money by re-using
“feedstock” such as food scraps, yard and grass clippings-known as “green waste”, paint, batteries,
wood and other construction materials. The item either finds a new life as a different product, or is used
as the same product with a different owner.
Collecting, sorting, cleansing, treating, and reconstituting materials that would otherwise become waste,
and returning them to the economic cycle in the form of material for new, re-usable, or recycled
products makes CENTS (sense).
We should all look at waste as a valuable resource for the materials it contains

Recycling Plastic

This article was interesting to me when I read it at Buzzle.com

Plastic is a very common material that is now widely used by everybody in this world. Plastic is used in many ways as it is light weight and compact. The maintenance that is required is very less. Common plastic items that are used are bags, bottles, containers and food packages. Whenever you buy grocery, food or any other item from any store you will use plastic bags for carrying them.

The plastic material has many advantages. They are especially very useful for packaging foods as the plastic items are durable, safe and cheap. The ease of use of plastic items has made plastic a great success. The great problem with plastic is its disposal. Plastic is made of polymer chemicals and they are not bio degradable. This means that plastic will not decompose when it is buried. When plastic is burnt it emits harmful chemicals. Though plastic is a very useful material that is flexible, robust and rigid they become waste after their use and they pollute the atmosphere.

To protect the environment as well as to take advantage of plastic, recycling procedure is used. Plastic can be recycled and new products can be formed from waste plastic. Though all types of plastic cannot be recycled a considerable portion can be recycled so that the environment is protected. Plastic recycling involves the process of recovering scrap plastics and these waste plastics are then reprocessed to form new materials that may be different from their original state.

Recycling plastic has many advantages. The use of non renewable fossil fuels is reduced by recycling plastic as manufacturing new plastic materials require more of these fuels. The consumption of energy is also reduced as already prepared plastic are recycled for new use. The amount of plastic that reach the landfill sites are greatly reduced by recycling. This will eliminate land pollution to some extent. The carbon emissions are reduced by recycling plastic as manufacturing units emit more carbon..

Compared to other materials like glass and metal, recycling of plastic is expensive and complex. This is due to the high molecular weight of the large polymer chains that build the plastic material. Heating plastic doesn’t dissolve he polymer chains and hence a tedious and complex process is essential.

Different types of plastic cannot be mixed together for recycling because they phase separate. Such a resulting melting product cannot be recycled to make another plastic product. While making plastic product many fillers like dues and other additives are used. These fillers cannot be separated from the plastic using inexpensive techniques. This makes the recycling process more complex.

The common process that is used in recycling plastic is the inverse polymerization process where the polymers in the plastic are converted into initial monomers that were used in the manufacture. These chemicals are then purified and synthesized to form new plastic materials. Assorted polymers are converted into petroleum in another recycling process. The advantage of this process is that any mix of polymers can be used. A new recycling process generates heat from the friction of plastic materials which melts the plastics. This is then pumped into casting moulds. The great advantage of this technique is that all types of plastics can be recycled.

To aid the recycling process, plastics come with plastic identification code to identify the different polymers that are used in the manufacture of plastic. The recycling process must be started from home. When you have utilized that plastic item for its use you can use the same item for some other use. For example, if you buy a juice bottle you can use the plastic bottle as a storage container for reusing the pet bottle. Also everybody must be aware of the recycling plant in the locality and must produce the waste plastic to the plant for recycling.
