With recycling in mind and help from my son Tali ( a great intern), I've put together a list of recycling resources
To Recycle Cell Phones:
- There are many ways you can recycle cellphones: http://www.call2recycle.org/
- or http://www.collectivegood.com/.
To Recycle Computers:
Recycling old computers is tricky, especially if you are paranoid about data on the hard drive. There are, however, a few options for recycling computers, monitors and printers. You can even make a few bucks in the process. Here is a great list that I found in the April issue of Town & Country magazine.
- Donate computers to schools: Computers for Schools is a Chicago-based organization that refurbishes and donates computers to schools. http://www.pcsforschools.org/
- Gadgets for underprivileged: Recycles.org connects old computers and gadgets with those who need those items.
- High-Tech donations: National Cristina Foundation (cristina.org) provides high-tech equipment to underprivileged consumers.
- Dell Computers and Apple: When you buy new equipment, you can get your old hard drive and monitor recycled free through Dell.com or Apple.
- Hewlett-Packard: Sell your used equipment (any brand) to HP "for $13 to $34," according to Town & Country magazine. www.hp.com/recycle
