Electronics Recycling

I don’t know about you, but over the years we’ve accumulated broken or outdated printers, computer parts, stereo equipent, etc. We’ve sold anything that still has value on EBay (in fact, we made over $300 last week selling our old PlayStation 2, GameCube, and network DVD player) but for the rest, we didn’t want to just put it in our trashcan and have it end up in a landfill. Fortunately, there are several electronics recycling companies in the area. Last Friday we loaded up the car (and stopped at Scott and Sue’s house so they could load up their junk) and headed to PC Recycler’s monthly free consumer drop-off day in Chantilly. We backed the SUV up, dumped everything, and left. According to their web site, they’re now recycling over 200,000 pounds of electronics per month. If you’re in Northern Virginia, please consider this option the next time you need to dispose of old/broken electronics!
