    Recycling your PC — and your gadgets, too


    By Katherine Murray

    It seems like just a few years ago, getting rid of old computer equipment meant giving it to someone else who would use it or (I hate to admit) putting the old printer out with the trash — a bad practice, we know now.

    There are many good reasons to recycle your electronics — and it's relatively easy to do. Here are some of the better choices.

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    Here in Iowa the Goodwill stores accept computers and associated hardware for recycling. They have an agreement with Dell I think and get a payment for the computers they process.

    Just to be clear, Goodwill Industries accepts all brands, and not just computers, but all sorts of electronics, for recycling. You do not have to own a Dell!
