Rechargeable batteries (Ni-Cd ,Ni-MH, Li-ion, and some small sealed lead ) can be recycled through the Call2Recylce Program. Use their online search to find out where to take them nearby.

Compact fluorescent light bulbs can now be recycled through Home Depot – they shouldn’t be just tossed out, since they do contain a small amount of mercury.

Computers can be donated to many places that refurbish and then make them available for low income schools, non-profits, etc.  Search Tech Soup’s Web site to find who near you will take old computer components and more information on donating computers.

Anything else … try the Earth911 Web site.  Their search box on the top of every Web page, allows you to search by what product and location.
