ORLANDO FL. Tech gadgets are always in high demand for Christmas gifts. But, there are tons of electronic materials that are still in landfills and could be recycled. An Orlando man is trying to address the problem by starting an electronic equipment repair company.
Patrick Smith began to tinker with electronics as an early child.
“I was fascinated with electronic equipment, especially vacuum tubes and older stuff such as that,” he stated.
Smith will fix anything that plugs in to a wall or runs on battery power, including televisions, radios, and gaming consoles of all ages. This skill is self-taught and he uses it to help his clients save money and remember.
They don’t expect that this kind of thing can be fixed. They said it was broken so I have to go get one. When they see me doing the work or tell them that it has been fixed, they are surprised.
Smith enjoys helping others, but he also loves the environment. This is why he started his SonicAge Stereo Repair business.
Electronic waste is a greater problem than ever before. Tens of thousands of tons are thrown into landfills each year. It might seem like a small problem, but he said that every one of them will be able to get it out of that landfill.
Many of his customers are from friends, family, or through online ads. Smith can be reached by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
