I’ll definitely bring out my dead for the eDay coming up on 29 September. Dumped in forgotten corners around the house we’ve got three ancient laptops with barely a flicker of life between the three of them.
A lot of people got into the spirit of things at last years eDay in September 2006 when 50 tonnes of dead computer equipment was collected.
Again this year people in the Wellington region (and possibly some other areas) are being encouraged to safely dispose of old computer equipment. The Computer Access NZ Trust (CANZ) is organising the free community computer recycling day for households, small businesses and schools, with help from the Wellington Region 2020 Communications Trust, Remarkit, WCC and a number of industry sponsors.
All computers will be broken down and the parts will be recycled for other purposes. Mobile phones will also be disposed of in an environmentally sustainable way.
The details: drop-off at the Westpac Stadium car park from 9am-3pm 29 September 2007. If you want to help out on the day, talk to Mike Ennis at Parts Plus.
