This is something that has been bothering me for a long time – lets be honest, it just feels wrong to take a computer to the dump or to throw an old television into the rubbish bin, knowing full well how many natural resources have gone into making it. Well I have had the pleasure of working with HP on a number of projects in recent times and I was recently told about Tech Collect.
When you consider that up to 80% of our electronic waste could in fact be recycled, we have to ask why this service isn’t more widely promoted. Well rather than bitch and moan about it, I am going to promote it and tell everyone I can. So take a moment or two, check out where your local drop off point is and next time you are wondering how to get rid of that old piece of electronic equipment, take it to a TechCollect site.
