Like most people, I'm growing a crop of computers and old electronics in my closet. Recycling such items is challenging, because it is difficult to ensure proper disposal, and it is illegal to just dump them.
Fortunately for all of us, there are two upcoming e-waste recycling events. Interestingly, both occur on the same weekend. On Saturday, August 25th and Sunday, August 26th, from 10AM - 4PM, Universal Waste Management will be accepting e-waste items at the IKEA parking lot in West Sacramento. On Sunday, August 26 from 9AM - 3PM, Electronic Waste Management is holding an event at Florin High School. So now you have plenty of time dig out your old televisions, computer monitors, broken printers and DVD players and cart them off, free of charge.
Here's a list of acceptable e-waste.
