This is a great opportunity to get rid of old equipment in the house or at the office. Throwing these items away is very harmful to our environment. Recycling these products reduces the need to mine the earth for raw materials, such as precious metals, glass, and plastics. When left in a landfill they can leak out mercury, lead, arsenic, and other hazardous materials. Tell your friends and family!

***There is up to a $30 fee for large TV's and a $5 fee to wipe your hard drive clean.
