So, I was complimenting myself on having a city sponsored drop off every two months, when this REALLY neat note showed up on another board."can call for hazardous waste pickup...I had a small stack of batteries for them and we got rid of all the leftover paint, too"How do you deal with stuff?
How do you deal with stuff?Save it up for a Hazardous Waste drop off day. Last time I even took in an old computer and they got all excited over it.UKBB <I removed the hard drive first>
I stopped using batteries in my tape recorder and bought a new electrical cord for it. Years ago, I used rechargable batteries but have not been able to find them recently.I'm saving all my lightbulbs to send to a lighting store in Wisconsin. Wisconsin requires recycling of them, and a shop up there said I could mail my bulbs to them, along with, of course, a small payment.There is a recycling place near me that takes computers for a small fee ($5/piece). I've only started buying and using paint. I have some cans of spray paint that I've been using judiciously. Thanks for the reminder to check for hazardous waste disposal days.LoveLoving
There is a recycling place near me that takes computers for a small fee ($5/piece).-----Freecycle plug! Freecycle plug!;-)I just "freecycled" a couple of ancient computers (one didn't even have a hard drive!) to a very grateful recipient. Only 18 hours after posting to the local Freecycle board (www.freecycle.org), someone was picking them up - no fuss, no muss, no fee, and they'll get used again!I've been on the other end too - received some homebrewing supplies, some movies, and a nice monitor to upgrade our elderly neighbors computer system. Pretty cool all the way around. I do recommend "digest mode" though (one compiled email/day), as individual emails can be numerous.
