I Got The Feeling

The purge is in progress;  the garage est finis.  (Feeling French.)

“Stuff” has been thrown away or properly recycled.  (Feeling green.)

It’s on the recycling end that I made a little discovery you may put to good use.  (Feeling helpful.)

Not knowing what I’d do with an old computer and other old electronics and appliances, I googled “electronics recycling Connecticut.”  And this web site popped up.  (Feeling eureka!)

I loaded the car with the “stuff,” and headed for this place.  (Feeling responsible.)

They took everything but an old coffee maker.  (Feeling pretty damn good.) 

The owner told me he used to repair computers, but switched to recycling when people started replacing them instead of fixing them.  (Feeling informed.)

Where old printers go to die.

Next stop:  the basement.  (About to feel overwhelmed.)

    I’ll bet when you got each and every one of those items you thought “now this is the best ________ I’ve ever had”, but then a few years (or months!) later a smaller & better one comes along. And then you end up several years later with a pallet of electronics that need to be recycled! Our town has a bulk trash pickup every 2 years, so we try to get rid of as much of our “junk” as possible at that time. Lucky you found that recycle website!

    Gerry,
    Swing by the next time you are going will you? I have some “donations” at the house, and the garage, and the office and maybe (oh ya for sure) down cellar….
    Hey, bring a truck, I doubt this will all fit in your car.
    Thanks alot!!
