Nowhere on their web site does it state that any monies earned from the processing/selling of donated items go towards any breast cancer support, research, or medical facilities.
This is not a non-profit, it's a for-profit business, which is great.
They DO suggest that they 'support of breast cancer' by removing items from your immediate environment that may be linked to the rise in incidences of breast cancer.
Otherwise, this is a free (to the consumer) electronic waste recycling business with no apparent ties to breast cancer, charitable or otherwise, beyond their use of the words and the pink ribbon.
I have not yet been able to discover if, as a 'green' recycling business, they obtain state or federal subsidies.
They're not rated by the BBB but no complaints have been filed against them in the long (10 years) period they've been in business, which is excellent.
Just know that you're not necessarily 'donating to a good cause' when you're dropping off your electronics.

People wake up and exercise your mind.
BOTH are an extreme fraud.
E-waste is BS...believe me I know...it's a temporary feel good moment. very similar to Viagra.
And the giant fraud is Breast cancer research...give them trillions and they wound be no closer...and folks don't think they haven't found a cause and a cure. You will never know it...WHY...Your smart, you figure it out...Two breast per female..what a potential business...and don't think it not.

Pretty harsh comments. A note: If you have e-waste you can take it there and they'll dispose of it - at no cost to you. Better than sneaking it into your household trash or dumping it somewhere.
I fail to see how that constitutes "an extreme fraud" or "BS" or how Julia would "know." The Beta Ct. organization is listed with the state e-waste recycling agency as an approved recycler. That's enough for me.
