Fourteen local businesses that have relied on EchoWorks to recycle its old electronics have been presented with Black Hills Works’ “Proudly Recycling our Electronics with EchoWorks!” seal. Entities receiving the digital seal, to be displayed on their websites and Facebook pages, have recycled their e-waste with EchoWorks more than once.
“We really value our partnership with these entities,” said Randy Sheppard, E-Recycling Supervisor for EchoWorks. “Together we are keeping e-waste out of our landfill and employing people with disabilities. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
We are grateful to the following businesses and entities which have relied on EchoWorks for their local e-recycling solution: Black Hills Energy, Douglas School District, Gadget Technology, National American University, Pacific Steel, Pennington County Housing & Redevelopment Commission, Phase Technologies, Rapid City Municipal Recycling Facility, Rushmore Electric, Utilibyte Computer Repair and Services of Rapid City, West River Electric Association, Western Dakota Tech, and Xanterra.
EchoWorks is a member of the Black Hills Works family that employs people with disabilities and provides electronic recycling services to Rapid City and the greater Black Hills region. Since launching in January 2020, we have collected more than 50,000 pounds of electronics from individuals and businesses.
Located on the campus of Western Dakota Tech, its hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. (closed on federal and school holidays).
EchoWorks accepts electronic devices including but not limited to computers/laptops, keyboards and other components, flat screen monitors, cell phones, tablets, DVR’S, Blueray and DVD/CD players, toner cartridges, and projection televisions. EchoWorks also accepts hard drives, which can be shredded. To ensure privacy, hard drives are logged from the point of collection to the point of destruction, and the customer can be provided with a certificate of destruction.
