Elli Workum knows a few things about working hard for your cause. A decorated athlete in both field hockey and track and field in college, Workum is in the athletic hall of fame at Miami University.
The tenacity, hard work and diligence that helped her in sports now helps fuel Technology Recycling Group. Workum is one who truly practices what she preaches, as her company, which specializes in the reuse and recycling of technological equipment, runs an operation that is 99 percent recyclable. In a time when more and more companies are looking for efficient solutions to recycle and reuse, TRG is able to not only offer up solutions but also to show clients how to walk the walk.
Moreover, Workum helps lead the charge for recycling in the community, donating working computers and monitors to underprivileged schools and TRG also offers a complete computer system to any student in the area for only $100. Beyond that, Workum recently realized that the company often received older but functional computers that were meant for use in hospitals. Rather than selling these computers, they’ve been sent to test markets in India to see if they would be able to be used in third-world hospitals. If they are, TRG plans to send them along so those hospitals can use them to better provide for patients.
Leading that push for more recycling everywhere gives Workum the ability to truly talk the talk, as few people do as much as she does for the cause.
