Tech Dump receives 2015 Community Impact Award from Minnesota Business Magazine

March 9, 2015

MHTA — Tech Dump, the electronics recycling division of the nonprofit Jobs Foundation, recently received the 2015 Community Impact Award from Minnesota Business Magazine. Tech Dump won the award in the Social Enterprise category, which “recognizes an outstanding social enterprise in Minnesota — companies that exist primarily to address social or environmental issues.”

Tech Dump was founded in 2011 and functions as a social enterprise focused on recycling electronics. Through its efforts, the organization protects the environment by providing secure, responsible electronics recycling, and also creates reliable jobs for people who lack job experience or have something in their past that might make them less desirable employees in the eyes of other businesses. Through working at Tech Dump, employees learn a variety of skills that will serve them well in the future. In 2014, the nonprofit employed 40 people and recycled 4 million pounds of electronics.
