Florida self-storage operators Budget Self Storage and Florida’s Storage Solution have joined the GreenSite e-waste drop-off program launched in May by Florida E-Waste Recycling.
Ten of Budget’s facilities have been authorized to serve as drop-off locations for computers, monitors, cell phones, toner cartridges and other electronic waste. The sites are in Bradenton, Clearwater, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Tampa and Valrico, Fla. Budget will donate a percentage of its proceeds from the recycling to local charities, according to Jon Dorman, vice president of Budget Management.
Thirteen Storage Solution sites are also designated GreenSite locations. These are in Bartow, Bradenton, Brandon, Dundee, Land O’ Lakes, Largo, Odessa, Sarasota, Spring Hill, Tampa, Trinity and Winter Haven, Fla.
Based in Tampa, Fla., Florida E-Waste Recycling provides solutions for recycling e-waste and batteries. It also offers hard-drive-destruction services and will buy some used computers. Mark Sage, managing partner, said the company will continue to add GreenSite locations throughout the state.
