California’s Perfect Storm:
economics, education and e-waste
With our unique system we offer
every school a participation in this program. As a school you are facing
huge funding cuts. Here is a solution which will cost no
money, will help our environment and get your community active involved in
school funding without adding more burden to the system or even the
parents. Here are the easy steps to get started and the idea to execute
the very unique funding process.
How to use our system? The idea is,
activate your local business to send their recyclable ink cartridges,
surplus (this is unused original printer and copier supplies) and
used cell phones directly to freerecycling.com , LLC, we pay for
the shipping charges and convert this recycling material into Cash
for your school.
How to start at your end? Use your
email blast system to promote this for your school to the parents
and they will help to push this within their company to get started. How
do we track this? After you have registered your school, we generate an
school account number. You let the companies know about this
number and they will have to send this material with your school account
number, and you will get the credit. With registering your school for
this program you get a special designed web page to promote this program
to parents (with your permission we add the school logo, name, may be
picture from the school and some other unique things we find on the
school web site), on this web page we present this program and also how
it will work. You can use this link within your email blast system or to
any email the school mails out.
There is nothing to sell, just keep
our valuable resources and environment clean and Safe. Recycle - It is all
With the use of the web page form your
school, with your permission we add your school logo and the school name
to this page and may be some other parts from your school web site
(after this page is generated we are happy to add some ideas from you).
Is this all? Now we start with the big picture behind this "Perfect
The state of California recognized in 2001 that cathode ray tubes found
in computer monitors and television sets contain 20 percent lead oxide
by weight, averaging 5 to 8 pounds of lead per unit. Consequently,
repair, recycling or disposal businesses that handle CRT-containing
products must adhere to State regulations for the handling of these
Because CRTs exceed both State and federal standards for hazardous
wastes, they are banned from disposal in municipal solid waste landfills
in California. In August 2001, Cal/EPA's Department of Toxic Substances
Control (DTSC) adopted emergency regulations reducing some hazardous
waste requirements to make it easier to collect, store and recycle CRTs.
Even though these opportunities were opened to the public, it was also
estimated in 2001that there were over 6.1 Million old TVs and computer
monitors stockpiled by residents statewide. If this number has grown at
a modest rate of 5% a year, this would mean there are probably 8.17
Million old TVs and computer monitors sitting in homes, garages or
storage units by the end of 2007.
Yes, the state of California is saving its landfills from toxic e-waste.
However, there is nothing gained if consumers are merely shifting piles
of clutter from their living room to a dark forgotten corner of their
life. A call to action to relinquish this garbage needs to make people
and the environment the beneficiaries of liquidating these out-dated
products of technology. How can you gain from this and how can we
turn E-waste into Cash?
You start with your email blast system to the parents and let them know
by collecting these CRT monitors for free (normally their company has to
pay to recycle this kind of material), that your school will receive
Cash. Every individual can drop off this kind of
material. Only used computer monitors and used TV's, no other
electronic materials is eligible for this system.
How does it work? The State of California repays the
recycling amount for CRT recycling, this was paid by the consumer when
they bought a new monitor or TV. freerecycling.com, LLC will split a
part of this proceeds for your
school and you will receive cash.
What do we need?
We need a "host location" as a temporary storage until we have
free picked up and removed the used monitors and TV. You can start running the campaign to
collect these monitors and TV's for recycling. They can drop these
off at your location. You can
ask your local chamber of commerce, the city, your local newspapers to
help promote this event. It is so unique, very
environmental friendly, a lot of fun and almost every household and
company in your area has some monitors and TV they do not know what to
do with it. All these are banned from the landfills in California!
Here is a sample of an average successful collection:
your school collects about 500 monitors and TV sets for
recycling, freerecycling.com, LLC then can generate out of this 15
free Pals software versions for classrooms, which represents a total
cash value of $3500,- - $4000,- for you school.
