Admit it - we have all been frustrated at some point when it comes to technology. One of the biggest growing frustrations, however, is what do you do with all this OLD technology as it becomes obsolete and you have replaced it? I have a basement filling up with the old stuff! You can't throw it in the dump, and here in my hometown, the semi-annual Big Trash Pick-Up has been called off (another post coming on that one).
Fortunately for me, I found a fabulous place to get rid of this stuff at no cost! This service is available to anyone, anywhere--they accept items from outside Connecticut, and they encourage national customers to ship smaller items by UPS.
The Computer Recycler is a free program where you can drop off (or send) your electronics in Cromwell, Connecticut, for recycling.
And don't just think computers . . . While they don't currently accept televisions, they do take over 75 other items including the big (Refrigerators, Dishwashers, Freezers, Furnaces, Dryers, Washing Machines, Hot Water Heaters . . .), the medium (VCRs, Cameras, Battery Backups, Telephones, Monitors, Keyboards, Printers, Towers, Scanners . . .), and the small (Alarm Clocks, Video Games, Cables, Mice, PDAs, Power Tools . . .).
