Community Recycling

Recycling electronics has not always been easy for consumers. The Surplus Exchange visits 10 counties across the Kansas City Metro area for e-Waste drop-off events. The Surplus Exchange accepts donations free of charge* at these drop-off events. *The only fee charged to consumers is for tube TV and computer monitors (CRT based products). These products are very expensive to recycle, so this minimal fee offsets the cost for Surplus Exchange not to absorb these costs. Over the last year,  CRT donations have increased and while increasing fees for the consumer would keep us from losing money for recycling, we fear that increasing costs would deter citizens from recycling and throw their TV’s/computer monitors into the garbage, ultimately ending up in our landfills. Items collected at these drop-off events are either refurbished and donated or sold through our tech shop inside the Surplus Exchange warehouse or through online sales.

Population(s) Served

ConnectHomeKC is a collaborative program between the City of Kansas City, MO, Google fiber, Connecting for Good, KC Digital Drive and the Full Employment Council (FEC) and is supported by the White House and the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The program’s goal is to place 1,900 computers and broadband internet in Kansas City, MO public housing communities. The Surplus Exchange collects, refurbishes and installs the computers needed for the program. We provide logistical support, data security, testing, and job training for the workers needed for this program. FEC workers learn hands-on IT technical skills; testing, breaking down and rebuilding computers. We are working to keep the cost per computer at $75. Commerce Bank has pledged 100 computers to the program and the City of Kansas City, MO. will donate their retired IT materials for use. To meet the goals of this program, we need more computers and external funding to cover all program costs.

Population(s) Served

The Surplus Exchange accepts donations from corporate institutions, nonprofits and the public of household electronics, surplus office furniture and supplies, and IT related materials. We then refurbish what is salvageable or recycle all donations. Donations of electronics and furniture are made available to other nonprofits, small and/or new businesses, and the general public at deeply discounted prices. Office/school supplies are offered for free to teachers with valid school district ID’s. Through our community outreach efforts, refurbished electronics and furniture are used in donation programs across the Kansas City Metro area.
