The Data Dump Is Returning

Safely recycle your electronics this Earth Day

Old computers placed on a table - outdoorsSarasota, FL April 4, 2022 – SouthTech, a managed technology solutions leader on the Florida West Coast will be hosting their next electronics recycling event in cooperation with the Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance and Lakewood Ranch Community Activities.

The event will be held Friday, April 22, 2022, at 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at 8100 Lakewood Ranch Blvd, Lakewood Ranch, FL 34202. Clients and the public are encouraged to bring their old, outdated electronics to be securely recycled at no charge. The Data Dump works like an assembly line. Participants pull up their car, SouthTech will help unload, and then the disassembly starts. Devices with hard drives will be taken apart and the hard drives will be punched with an industrial drill press, destroying them so no one can access previous data. Participants are welcome to stick around to watch or record the hard drive destruction, for proof of secure disposal, or if they’re in a hurry they can head out as soon as their car is unloaded.

Accepted items include LCD monitors, printers, computers, laptops, keyboards, tablets, cables, and phones. Items that cannot be accepted include televisions, batteries, and CRT monitors.

“We are thrilled to once again be hosting the Data Dump alongside our partners this Earth Day. The rate at which technology changes today, business owners are left with a tremendous amount of e-waste. We’re glad to offer our business members and community the opportunity to dispose of it in a manner that is free, secure and environmentally sustainable,” said Dan Sidler, Vice President of the Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance.

“The Data Dump at Lakewood Ranch Main Street is a wonderful opportunity for residents to dispose of their unwanted electronics in a way that is not only safe to their personal data, but free of charge. The entire process is simple! Just drive up and even get assistance with unloading your electronics,” said Keith Pandeloglou, President and CEO of Lakewood Ranch Community Activities.
