Avoiding the Landfill: Recycling Computers

Recycling soda bottles? Easy – just take them back to a store. And everyone knows newspapers go in a curbside bin or to a recycling center. But with computers, not everyone knows what to do with them once they're obsolete. Michael Kasiborski and Photojournalist Eric Wotila talked to two local computer businesses, PC Outlet in Cadillac and City Mac in Traverse City, about the best ways to go green when getting rid of unused technology. City mac also recycles other electronic devices, including iPods. If you're going to recycle your computer and are still unsure about what to do with your hard drive, you can always have someone remove it and give it back to you.
