Best Place to Take Care of Spring Cleaning - 2009
Each year, close to 400 million units of obsolete electronics get scrapped, according to the local do-gooders at GreenCitizen. That means in the years to come, billions of units will be sitting on garbage heaps, waiting to be recycled and contaminating our water, land, and air in the process. Even in eco-conscious places like San Francisco, office buildings and apartment complexes become dumping grounds for old electronics. But you can easily recycle your clunky old TV monitors and unwanted computers at a minimal cost with GreenCitizen, which takes its commitment to ridding landfills of toxic e-waste seriously. Schedule a pickup or drop off your goods at one of three locations. Cables and batteries can be disposed of at no cost, while heavier items go for a reasonable 50 cents a pound. You can learn all about the proper management of useless old equipment from GreenCitizen's friendly staff in the process. It's good for the environment, and it's good for your conscience.
