Meet James Trask and Tom Gayef, managing partners at LessThan3 and creators of the revolutionary app SkipTheDepot. Together, James and Tom have built an amazing application that is taking the friction out of going to the bottle depot. Instead of taking the time out of your day to return your bottles, cans, plastics and even old electronics and clothing, you can order a pick up with the click of a button. The funds from the bottle depot can be credited back or you can choose to donate the funds.

Items they currently accept:

  • Cans

  • Bottles (plastic, glass, aluminum, tetra brik, gable top, bi-metal, etc)

  • Old Electronics (computers, servers, TVs, printers, computer accessories, microwaves, etc)

  • Clothing & Items (clothing, luggage, shoes, bedding, accessories, draperies, etc)

In this episode, you will learn how James and Tom built their business and where their idea came from. Also, you will learn about the technology they are using to deploy their app. Finally, you will hear the story of where they met and what they do with their personal time.
