adt-story-10-16On a recent flight to Denver, Chris Fagnant, President of Qualtek Manufacturing, struck up a conversation with Glen Smith, Director of Dealer Operations for ADT, the home and business security services company. Chris asked how ADT recycled their old security devices and suddenly the two businessmen were discussing how Blue Star Recyclers creates jobs for people with autism and other disabilities by recycling electronics.

They also found a shared interest in security when Chris mentioned how Blue Star Recyclers shreds data devices to protect personal information. Glen was so impressed he shared Blue Star’s story through a newsfeed with the ADT Authorized Dealer Group nationwide.

Thanks for spreading the word about Blue Star Recyclers and helping to create more jobs for people with disAbilities!
