TradeWinds discontinues electronics recycling

Effective immediately, TradeWinds Services will no longer participate in electronic recycling. After review, a decision was made to focus our resources on core services such as the Sign Shop, Textile Manufacturing, Packaging & Assembly and Community Employment/Work Solutions. TradeWinds Services will continue to enhance our training programs for people with disabilities to enhance skill levels to improve opportunities of employment in the community. For questions, call Lisa Tatina, 219-945-3116.
