An easy way to recycle electronics

Posted By Paul

If you're like me you have accumulated a fair amount of electronics that are broken beyond repair, but that you just don't feel right tossing in the trash.

Well there is a great service that Office Depot offers where they do tech recycling. The basic idea is that you go to a store and purchase an etech recycling box. They come in small ($5), medium ($10), and large ($15) sizes and you take them home and fill them with allowed electronics and then you bring them back in and Office Depot takes it from there, sending your electronics to various recycling sites.

It's not free, but it's pretty affordable (especially if you share a box with 2 or 3 friends) plus you don't have to drive all over town finding places to take your various recycled items.

Here is the brochure for the program:

I bought the large box and I am filling it up now.
