CHINO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 22, 2021 / Yesterday, national news network ABC discussed ways to protect the environment with Gizmogo, a rapidly growing start-up leading the way in recycling used electronic devices. Chief Information Officer Steven Vasquez shared how Gizmogo works with consumers to recycle their used technology, with a goal of increasing the total percentage of electronics recycled each year-currently at a shockingly low 17 percent.

"We're trying to put this information [about electronic waste] into the hands of people while giving them an outlet to recycle their devices, and at the same time getting the most money for them," says CIO Steven Vasquez. "We feel if we give information to people, and we also give them an accessible, simple way to recycle their material, they'll do the right thing."

Electronic waste (or E-waste) is a huge issue across the globe. Almost 50 million tons of e-waste are produced every year. That huge amount contributes to the 292.4 million tons of municipal solid waste being contributed to landfills each year in the US alone. All that waste is filling up our landfills, to the point where we could start running out of space within our lifetimes. When old technology is disposed of in landfills, it can leach harmful chemicals into the soil and groundwater. These chemicals are known to be detrimental to the environment, yet they exist in cell phones, laptops, tablets, and other technology we use on a daily basis. Qualified recycling facilities such as Gizmogo can handle these harmful materials safely, protecting the environment from their negative impacts.

During the interview with ABC, Vasquez shares tips to help reduce your personal e-waste footprint. One recommendation offered is to sell used devices to Gizmogo, so they can properly recycle and reuse the technology. In fact, he stressed that Gizmogo is a disrupter in the recylcing space because they will buy back almost any device, including broken and outdated technology. Smartphones, computers, tablets, iPods, Kindles, DSLR cameras, and even drones are all recyclable at their facility. This is because the Gizmogo team's priority is keeping old devices out of the landfill, and reusing technology components in order to conserve natural resources. In fact, for every 1 million phones recycled, an impressive 35,000 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium can be recovered. Plus, for each device that is recycled, carbon dioxide is prevented from entering the atmosphere. For example, by recycling 60 pounds of electronics 158 pounds of CO2 are avoided.

"We'll buy back just about any device you can think of! That's really one of the difference makers [of our business model]. A lot of companies out there don't buy back broken materials, but at Gizmogo we will buy back broken materials," says Vasquez. "We're more focused on trying to get rid of these materials that can be hazardous to our environment."
