Hello my name is CoCo Hankerson and CoCo The Geek started off as just a nickname. The name came about because I am such a geeky person who was doing production audio for Tv and Film, Repairing Audio Equipment and Computers, while also offering tech support—so, I was known as the "geek" around town. During my start of my business everyone assumed CoCo The Geek was a company and not an individual, so I built around that making it the official company name.
- On August 8, 2020 I decided to start offering Free Electronic & Scrap Metal Recycling to people in my neighborhood. I was seeing a tremendous amount of waste and felt like it was the perfect time to execute. The pandemic really allowed me to go full force with my company. I just took a leap of faith and look where we are today! Growing and still going!
- Prior to starting Coco The Geek as an actual business and not just a name, I already had over 13 years of Audio Experience including Production Sound Mixing/Supervising for TV & Film.
- Fast Forward to September 11, 2022, I decided it was time to change the focus of the business to just dealing with AV Equipment instead of trying to be an "everything recycler".
- Being that Audio is my speciality and my background it made sense to migrate things over but, most importantly to keep these items out of the landfills.
