Local nonprofit business booming from new Indiana state law

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A local nonprofit could soon double its workforce all thanks to a new Indiana state law.

Bridges to Digital Excellence started in Benton Harbor and just expanded into South Bend. It collects old computers and electronics, fixes them and then puts them up for sale.

A new Indiana law makes it illegal to throw away e-waste, and since bridges is one of the only places to recycle electronics locally business is booming.

"We’re here ready to serve the community and put people to work and this is something that can solve the employment issues and barriers,” said Doug Chapman. “Especially for those folks who need that extra transitional piece for that job."

Bridges to Digital Excellence hopes to add at least 30 new jobs.
