Scrap on Spot Hosts the Deconstruction Zone at Gulf Coast MakerCon!

Deconstruction Zone MakerCon flyer We’re very excited to announce a collaborative partnership with Scrap on Spot for Gulf Coast MakerCon 2015.  Scrap on Spot is an e-waste recycling company with a higher purpose, committed to environmental stewardship and sustainability through the recycling and repurposing of electronics.  Scrap on Spot president Tony Selvaggio was the recent winner of the  Hillsborough Business Pitch Competition at the county’s Access to Capital event, and has spoken at 1 Million Cups Tampa and other events throughout the area about helping us change our behavior and mindset with regard to electronic waste.

At Gulf Coast MakerCon, Scrap on Spot is partnering with Eureka Factory to help young guests get up close and personal with electronics in the Deconstruction Zone, where youth, with the guidance of adult experts, can help dissassemble scrap electronics and learn about what’s inside the electronic devices we use every day.

Scrap on Spot will also be providing on-site e-waste collection.  Now’s the time to unload SOS-logo-small_1408371925_referencethose old Computers, Keyboards, Mice, Circuit Boards, Printers, Scanners, Copiers, Fax Machines, VHS Players, CD Players, Stereos, Telephones & Cell Phones, Component Parts, Tablets, and Laptops.  (Please do NOT bring  Batteries, fluorescent light bulbs and TVs or monitors. Thank you!)

Thank you, Scrap on Spot, for helping us Make our Day!
