Happy Holidays from Free Geek


Whew, what a year! As 2013 draws to a close, we at Free Geek are looking forward to the holiday season. We hope this has been as great a year for you as it has for us. With the help of the 788 volunteers we’ve welcomed this year, we have been able to accomplish so much, including tackling veritable mountains of electronics with our (gloved) hands. Just look at these numbers!

12,262 pounds of wire
11,280 pounds of e-waste
9,536 pounds of circuit boards
6,301 pounds of steel
3,736 pounds of hard drives
3,583 pounds of batteries
2,943 pounds of fans
2,904 pounds of transformers
2,745 pounds of motherboards
2,280 pounds of aluminum



All this adds up to a dizzying total of 57,570 pounds of e-waste, roughly the equivalent weight of two Metro Vancouver buses packed with commuters at rush hour – quite the haul.

We are proud to say that we, along with our indispensable team of volunteers, have refurbished, resold, or ethically recycled every item listed and saved it from its fate in a landfill. Cheers to Free Geek, and three cheers to all our volunteers! Your commitment and enthusiasm made this achievement possible. We look forward to working with both new and familiar faces in 2014.




We are also very excited to greet the upcoming year with projects that will help us to further educate and inform our community about ethical e-waste recycling. Look for us at community events and trade shows in and around Vancouver – we are still finalizing the particulars, but we will keep you posted on Facebook and Twitter, as well as here on our blog. We are planning monthly blog posts to keep our volunteers, followers and fans abreast of all that is happening. Make sure to check back for the latest news, and as always feel free to contact us with your questions.

Best wishes from the Free Geek Vancouver family. We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, and a safe and happy New Year.
