Recycling Computers

April 22nd was the semi-annual tech recycling offered by the City of Durango and SJBDC. I carried a truckload of old equipment to the recycling center.


Recycling keeps a lot of hardware out of landfills. While the debris itself is important, it is only a part of the big picture for recycling computers and electronics. Older computers contain many pollutants including heavy metals such as mercury and cadmium.
