Denver Startup Week, the weeklong event highlighting Denver’s entrepreneurial and innovative culture, is hosting a technology recycling drive to close out its week of events. The event, which will be held Saturday, 9/21 from 11am-3pm, is accepting computer hardware, electronics and peripherals.
“Denver is a city of techies, innovators and entrepreneurs who never cease to amaze us with the latest gadgets and up-to-date technology. But we also appreciate environmental responsibility,” said Erik Mitisek, CEO of the Colorado Technology Association and co-organizer of Denver Startup Week. “We wanted to give startups and business owners — in addition to the entire community — an opportunity to recycle their old tech products for free so they don’t end up in landfills.”
Typically, technology recycling costs hundreds of dollars, and businesses are required by law to pay to have their outdated technology recycled. The Denver Startup Week Recycling Drive is free.
“Recycling outdated technology can be expensive, especially for small businesses and entrepreneurs like those attending Denver Startup Week,” said CenturyLink vice president and general manager Scott Russell. “The Denver Startup Week Technology Recycling Drive will make it simple for these business owners to responsibly get rid of their outdated technology.”
The Technology Drive will accept donations to benefit the Denver Biz Tech Expo (DBTE) Young Men’s and Young Women’s Technology Scholarships, which will be awarded at the Expo on October 24.
The Technology Drive will be held in ViaWest’s Parking lot at 501 Wazee Street, which ViaWest, a sponsor of StartUp Week, donated for the event.
