Electronics recycling has been largely unregulated

Larry is interviewing Creighton Bildstein, President of Urban Mining2, North American Technology Exchange’s Material Acquisition, Sales and Marketing subsidiary. Prior to this undertaking, he was a co-founder, co-owner and principal in an asset management and disposition company located in Denver, CO for 11 years in which he personally secured numerous contracts with Fortune 500 companies. As you probably are aware, there is a Colorado law, passed last year whereby residences and businesses are not allowed to throw electronics in the trash, it has to be brought into recycling. Back in the late 90s, Unicor a federally owned entity provided prison labor for electronic recycling to private industry - manufacturing and services. Basically prisoners taking apart cameras etc., which contained lead, arsenic cadmium, mercury, silicon... this is really bad stuff. Breaking these electronic devices with hammers created lots of toxic dust. About five years into the project, prisoners, guards and their families started coming down with heavy metals related illnesses, resulting in lawsuits against Unicor. Now they are looking to private industry, the manufacturers of electronics, who really don't tell you what's in their products. Most of Creighton's efforts have involved working with C-level executives within the telecom, data center and cable TV industries finding ways to help them maximize the value of their end-of-life electronic assets. His success comes from creating strategies and solutions to complex problems...Listen for more ideas...

Shared mission to build companies, a strong state and country
1506_ 2/17/14 -
Through expertly facilitated discussion, What to do? becomes What to do. Perspective is achieved, a definitive plan of action is determined. In subsequent meetings, progress is checked and accountability ensured. We are speaking with Bob Carrothers, Vistage Chair and sponsor of Colorado Companies to Watch. Larry asked Bob why Vistage was a sponsor. "Because", he said, "our mission is the same. Helping to build successful companies is part of building a successful country, a successful state." Put 12 or so high performing business executives in a room and the potential is enormous. The role of a Vistage Chair is to question answers, not simply answer questions, so the core of an issue is exposed, clarity is achieved, and a forward path is charged. Vistage members control businesses with annual sales ranging from $1 million to over $1 billion, representing the most vital component of the economy. Around the world, Vistage-member companies generate nearly $300 billion in annual revenue and employ approximately 1.8 million people. In a recent analysis, Vistage CEO member companies significantly outperformed the compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of the average Dun & Bradstreet U.S. company from 2005 to 2009.
