One Way to Recycle Computer Equipment

Staples will now recycle your computer equipment for $10.

It's a good deal for them; much of what is in your computer can be re-used in some fashion. And it's not a bad deal for you, if you need to get rid of computer equipment quickly. (Mice and keyboards are free to recycle, btw). And it's a great deal for the planet because computer equipment often contains lead, mercury, and cadmium, none of which you want in the ground, your water supply, or body.

Many county and cities sponsor days to recycle your computers for free, of course, and if you're headed to Staples, give them a call first just to make sure they're up to speed.
