How To Recycle your Computer


<span>Computers sure are handy when they are working but once they've chewed their last byte, things can get a little messy. Toxic chemicals, carcinogens and heavy metals are all part of what makes their clocks tick, and improper disposal can bring them all a little too close for human comfort. Computer recycling is nothing new, but getting your old electronics to the great motherboard in the sky can be tricky to do responsibly. For years, developed countries have been exporting tons of electronic waste for inexpensive, labor-intensive recycling and disposal, mostly to China. It's been illegal to import e-waste into China for dirty recycling and dumping since 2000, but smuggling, corruption and China's appetite for scrap keep it coming. One of the best ways to get clean recycling is simple: just ask questions. A reputable recycler should be able to tell you where hardware is sent, and if the company exports or uses prison labor. The recycler should also be able to tell you how it handles data destruction; you'll want the recycler or reuse organization to wipe the hard drive for you so any personal information doesn't end up where it doesn't belong. If you are donating your equipment to a reuse organization, ask if equipment is tested before it is passed on for donation and if the company only ships working equipment. Ask who their recipient organizations are. If the answer to any of these questions is, "We don't know," or, "We can't tell you," it may be time to send your equipment elsewhere.<br /> One of the easiest options is to use your computer manufacturer's recycling program, though most major manufacturers charge fees and require you to do the packing and shipping. The <a href="http://svtc.etoxics.org/">Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition</a>, a good guide to responsible recycling, finds many of the manufacture take-back programs wanting and publishes a <a href="http://www.svtc.etoxics.org/site/PageServer?pagename=svtc_computer_report_card">report card</a> on the environmental effectiveness of most of them.<br />The <a href="http://rethink.ebay.com/">Rethink Program</a>, hosted by eBay has a good computer recycling FAQ section and many useful links to recyclers, as do <a href="http://www.compumentor.org/">CompuMentor</a>'s Tech Soup site and the EPA's<a href="http://www.epa.gov/epaoswer/osw/conserve/plugin/reuse.htm">eCycling</a> website. Be aware, though, that the recyclers listed on these sites have not been vetted or approved by these organizations in any way. The Basel Action Network also carries a list of electronics recyclers that have <a href="http://www.ban.org/pledge1.html">signed their stewardship pledge</a>, under which recyclers agree not to export e-waste or add it to landfill, or use prison labor, and to document where equipment, parts and materials go.<br />If your machine still functions (and not just as a paperweight), then seeing that it is reused is perhaps the best option. Companies like <a href="http://www.treehugger.com/files/2005/06/retrobox_recycl.php">RetroBox</a> and <a href="http://www.freegeek.org/">FreeGeek</a> build computers out of salvaged parts; the latter has a <a href="http://www.freegeek.org/recyclelink.php">list of like-minded organizations</a> that can be a good starting place for recycling or reusing your machine. <br /> <br /><a href="http://parentables.howstuffworks.com/"></a></span>

How to dispose the electronic items ?


Hi,
To dispose the electronic items, look out for recycling events regularly conducted by big retailers. You can drop all your outdated electronics from TVs to hairdryers at these outlets for recycling.

Have a professional recycling and disposal company pick up your electronic items. You may have to pay a nominal fee depending on the weight and size of the items for pick-up and transport. Mail in a shipment as a cheaper option.


Thank you

Consider recycling it, most major electronic retailers now have a recycle program for dead electronics which at the most is a very minuscule fee. Also consider contacting your Cellular service provider or Nokia for responsible recycling options.

Time, Date , year keep recycling when first plugged in.


You should take this Clock/Radio back for a refund or exchange. If that is not possible, try taking the battery out and unplug the Clock/Radio. Leave it set for at least an hour with no power. This will let the microprocessor discharge and reset itself. You also need to replace the battery. It is a CR2430. You can find them in most large electronic stores, large drugstores and supermarkets. Fry's electronics and Radio shack carry them. You can also buy them on line. After letting the Clock/Radio discharge for at least a hour, put the battery back in and plug it in. The functions should return to normal. If not you may have a more serious problem with the microprocessor. You can call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020 and ask them for help with the problem. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Tv return


Greetings angelsj,

In some of our Best Buy™ stores, we do accept electronics for recycling. I believe the fee you are seeing is a state imposed fee that has nothing to do with the retail establishment. I have most often seen this in the California stores.

My suggestion would be to contact your local store and see if they are capable of accepting the unit.

I hope this helps!
