Do You Recycle Old Electronics?


Yesterday at an office, I saw dozens of keyboards, mice, printers, cables and the like simply tossed into a dumpster. It made me feel ill to know they were going to a landfill instead of being recycled. In addition, nothing was wrong with these items. The office had just gotten new computer equipment. Do you recycle this type of item?

    Alas Tamara, they are already in the dumpster. This happened at a medical office so I know those people have access to recycling. They just chose not to utilize them. It makes me mad and ill to see such waste and it adds to the burden for our planet.

    What is so sad Becky is that they were good with nothing wrong with them. The office just got new computer systems. I thought about taking them just to recycle but was with someone else and did not have my car.

    Sadly, we have these resources in place. The office in question just did not utilize them. It mads me physically ill to realize just how easily people waste and add to the problems our planet is experiencing.
