By Jonathan Kendrick, Digital Technology Partners Owner/CEO

My son Elijah John Kendrick was born October 16, 2005, just 3 months after I started Digital Technology Partners.  It was a rough pregnancy for my wife and I, as Elijah was born with a heart defect and Down Syndrome.  The next year was spent being more of a nurse than a parent, feeding tubes, medications, and two heart surgeries for Eli.  Our lives would never be the same.

Elijah is non-verbal, and has grown up with sensory processing, sleep disorders, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and behavior issues. When Elijah was 8, he was diagnosed with Autism.  It didn’t really shock us, but it was still devastating. To date, there have been a mass amount of resources that have helped Elijah and our family cope and deal with the struggles he has had to face.  He is doing so well, and has come so far.  I can’t say how proud I am of him.  He has a wonderful personality outside of these challenges, and continues to get better every day.

Elijah and individuals like him have a lot of resources available to them until they age out of public school at the age of 21 years old.  After 21, there are few programs available for the growing number of Adults with special needs.  I want to do something about it!

Over 60% of e-waste ends up in landfills, where toxic materials like mercury and lead seep into the environment. Work4Eli’s disposal process includes the proper separation of materials and their deliveries to the appropriate refineries.


We know compliance is of the utmost concern to dentists, which is why we implement NIST and HIPAA approved processes, such as degaussing and hard drive shredding. We also provide documentation certifying the items’ safe disposal.


Work4Eli provides meaningful employment opportunities to adults with disabilities, who dismantle electronics and prepare the parts for scrap or reuse. Learn more about the inspiration behind Work4Eli here.

Is Work4Eli non-profit?
No, Work4Eli is not non-profit. One of the primary goals for the program is to provide employment to special needs adults. This includes providing wages and maintaining employment legalities.

Do you charge for equipment pickup?
We charge a small fee for equipment pickup. Work4Eli is self-sustained, and all excess revenue is funded directly back into the program.

What happens to the e-waste?
Digital Technology Partners is a minimal processing facility. After items go through our onsite breakdown, we forward their parts to the appropriate refineries, including Ecycle Atlanta and CHaRM (The Center for Hard for Recycle Materials).

Fun fact: 100% of the parts we handle make it to the appropriate refineries, and 0% end up in landfills.

How do you ensure a safe work environment?
As a minimal processing facility, we don’t work with hazardous materials onsite. We maintain a clean work environment, provide the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including gloves and eyewear, as well as training and supervision.

What is Georgia’s Employment First Act?
Georgia’s Employment First Act, signed into law May 8th, 2018, promotes employment as the first and preferred option offered to people with disabilities receiving government funded services. In states where Employment First has been implemented, employment rates of individuals with disabilities have increased significantly.
