Our Educational Programs
Take 2 provides FREE educational presentations & events to schools and organizations across CT.
Our E-Waste Ambassador Program, teaches elementary school children about e-waste and raises awarness about recycling electronics in Connecticut.
Participating in these activities allows us to engage with our next generation while teaching them the importance of ecycling and sustainable living.
Take 2 entered a Qualified Partnership with Easter Seals of Greater Waterbury and the Connecticut Community Nonprofit Alliance (formerly CCPA) to create jobs for people receiving vocational services from Easter Seals.
We also provide career opportunities and job training through a partnership with Chapel Haven This enables people with disabilities to become independent and live fulfilling lives. Take 2 strongly believes in enriching the lives of everyone in our communities.
Take 2 manages numerous one-day collection events in cities and towns and at businesses throughout the state. We host approximately 65 one-day collection events each year. Our goal is to promote recycling and divert millions of pounds of e-waste from the solid waste steam. Through these events we are able to maximize the quantity of e-waste collected from your residents by targeting those who do not utilize your transfer station.

“The guys who came to pick up the electronics we had stored in Hartford did an outstanding job. I’m not used to that kind of professionalism and knowledge from vendors. I offered to help them package the equipment and they told me that this is what they do. They made everything so easy.”
Bonnie Orintas, City of Waterbury Litter Control & Beautification Commission
“I love what you guys do for our environment. The whole team worked so hard at our event at the Brass Mill Mall to unload almost 300 cars. Everyone who came left smiling. We think Take 2 is great!”
Rodin Joseph, Everest Technology Services
“Your guys under team leader, Almando, were professional, worked tirelessly and without complaint to ensure that every piece of equipment was removed from our data center.”
COVID-19 Update: Take 2 is classified as an “ESSENTIAL BUSINESS” and will remain open, adhering to our normal business hours. CT residents may drop off household electronics at Take 2. As communities respond to COVID-19, normal operating hours for collection sites or events may be impacted.
