A Day in the Life of an Electronics Drive

Things are heating up this spring for the Green Penguin team. April is going to be our busiest month yet, with several electronics waste drives we are co-hosting with some of our favorite community partners. Things at Green Penguin are just GO-GO-GO! Earth Day is coming quickly, and we at Green Penguin want to make every day of April your Earth Day!
Electronics drives mean work for every department of the Green Penguin company. From receiving – which must quickly unload and sort all items for testing and/or recycling – to tech, that keeps the process going (both testing and disassembling for recycling), each team works together to make room for the next load. Scrap hardware is torn down further for recycling: steel on one pallet, plastic on another, boards on another, etc. etc. etc. Our skilled technicians work non-stop sorting potentially working, reusable parts and testing them in one of our many test-beds for computer parts and electronics.
Reusable parts and machines move on down to sales/inventory where Aimee and Sandra post our tested, working hardware online for other re-use and/or repair-savvy folk to purchase! Of course, eBay sales means questions from buyers and purchases to be processed, which keeps our customer service and shipping departments ever-increasingly busy as well.
We’re all thrilled to be taking such an active role in this year’s local Earth Day celebration!
