Recycle Electronics July 23

We men have a penchant for cycling through electronics, and this can mean a build up of old toys that just don't do well in a landfill. Habitat for Humanity's Restore and Vintage Tech Recycler have a solution: this Saturday, July 23, you can bring your old electronics to be properly disposed of, even recycled, between 8:30 am and 2 pm. More info here.

Disposing of electronics properly is important to help keep harmful substances in electronics--lead, mercury, cadium--from ending up in landfills and contaminating the environment.

About 60% of all electonics can be re-used and the rest get recycled to their original state. Items that will be accepted Saturday include man-gadgets such as cell phones, stereo equipment, game consoles, and televisions. Anyone who donates an item Saturday will get a coupon for 50% off their next purchase at ReStore.

With how hot it is outside, this is a good time to stay inside and go through your stuff and take any old gear to State Fair.
