Southeastern Data Opens Its New Location Palm Beach County Begins its Partnership and Extends its E-Recycling Services to both Residents and Businesses in Hillsborough County and throughout Tampa, Florida.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Florida (September 2016) – Southeastern Data has been awarded a contract with Hillsborough County to become its sole residential computer and electronics e-recycling provider. The Hillsborough County board approved the agreement in the beginning of August.
The County has long made it a mission to keep its residents safe by offering year-round electronics recycling and household hazardous waste disposal. However, recent shifts in the industry forced many recycling and computer companies to close locations or no longer offer services. This shift required the County to search for a partner to continue its computer and electronics recycling program.
An average of 1,500 computers, laptops, TVs, and other electronics are collected from approximately 1,250 residents monthly. Of those electronics, more than 25,000 pounds per month are processed and prepared for recycling.
