Recycling electronics, whether giving usable ones to a friend or school, selling it or giving it away to a stranger, if possible, donating it to a recycling group that distribute them to people in need, it is all good.

The frustration comes in when you have to pay to recycle it, even though you understand the reasons. More and more counties and states are allowing drop off free of televisions, computers, and other drop offs. Starting in 2009, Washington state, the home of my heart, offers free recycling of:

  • televisions
  • computers and computer monitors
  • portable or laptop computers

For Information on their program, click here.

Many counties in Florida, the home of part of my heart, already offer free recycling of similar items and then some. Two are Miami/Dade and Broward.

My favorite information source, though, was Earth911. I found this list of computer manufacturers that will recycle. There is a wealth of other information there, as well, including a good use for our old cell phones.

Tomorrow, more on the food bank donations… Tonight, we have an idea to surprise a friend. Have to set it up! Smile, it is so worth the effort!
