Recycling “stuff”

Earth 911 is a great site for finding out where to recycle all sorts of things. Put in your zip code and what you want to recycle and they provide a list of local places.

Also check out Gcycle (sponsored by Earth 911)- a multifaceted electronics recycling campaign. The site provids information on where to recycle “tech stuff.” I found the graphics a little annoying but the site is great. Their goal – to keep these toxic wastes out of landfills and make it as easy as possible for people to recycling such things as old cell phones, batteries, tvs, monitors, laptops, video tapes, etc

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has a site called myGreenElectronics which provides information on where to recycle lots of other electronics like flashlights and home theater equipment.

Lastly, don’t forget to check out Tech Soup for more general information on electronic recycling programs and ideas.

*In the end, remember to think before you buy so you can REDUCE and REUSE before you even get to RECYCLE*
