[GreenYes] Re: Computer Recycling




Hi Colleen,

Check to see if you have a local PC users group who can clean the hard
drives ( yes, I realize that the latter part of the statement is an
oversimplification ). Then, try to find a way to route them to needy
students or to a local thrift store to sell them at low cost.



Take care,

Rose

I am the Program Director for a non-profit in a fairly rural but
affluent community. The residents here update their home and office
computers on a regular basis and my organization in turn receives a
lot
of phone calls asking where they might recycle their computers.
Unfortunately, we don't have a system in place with our local waste
hauler (transfer costs are too financially prohibitive). Does anyone
have experience with how rural communities are dealing with computer
waste/recycling?
