Would like to recycle old electronics

Hi,

I have quite a few electronics aound my home and I would like to recycle them or give them to a responsible organization to dispose of them as "greenly" as possible. One of your sales people thought you may have such a service. Could you let me know. I live in Waterford MI.

Thanks.

PS. I only put that product as it required that I put in a product name. This is not what I want to recycle.

Call your community office and see if they have any Household Hazardous Waste events in the area. Many places (like here in Saginaw MI) have E-waste events tied to these. There are three events over the summer.

There are different types of electronics recycling companies, and some electronics that won't be accepted. If you could list the devices you have for recycling, I could give you a list of recyclers and the devices that won't be accepted. Keep in mind that some of these recyclers require you to get the devices to them, so it will be out of your pocket, but some have you send it COD, so it's out of theirs.

How to make money scrapping metals


It's quite easy, actually. Almost every city has several places that take recycled scrap metal. Near me, they pay per pound on pretty much everything you can collect, from aluminum soda cans to full-blown cars. It's a very easy way to make a few dollars - all you need is a method of hauling them to a recycler. Attached is a sample list taken from a recycler that I've done business with in the past. http://kcscrapyard.com/wp-content/uploads/kcpricesheet.pdf

Prices can and often do change daily. A few words of warning, though:



  • Attempting to steal metals to recycle for profit is illegal. Harvesting copper and/or steel from city/county fixtures where I live is subject to immediate arrest. Only attempt to recycle materials which you have legal possession of.


  • If you live near a railroad, be aware that possession (and attempted recycling) of any piece of the railroad (track sections, spikes, and anything from switches) is also immediately going to get you arrested.


  • Some recycling companies require an ID and signature on every sale.


  • Certain things are considered HHW (Household Hazardous Waste) and must be disposed of at a special facility designed to process them. Such examples are most e-wastes, MOTs (microwave over transformers), and some car components. There are many online guides to help you determine what can and cannot safely be removed and recycled.


For most people, though, it's a great way to make money. When you're walking along the roadside and see an empty can or tin laying around, take it home and bag it. When you have a few bags worth, taking it into the recycler could get you $10. For almost no invested time or effort - basically for doing your civic duty.

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

How do i put freon in this unit


I have had a AD75UST0 WHIRLPOOL Dehumidifier for several years. If it actually still runs, I would suggest you take off covers and give the coils a good thorough cleaning. Otherwise the units are not designed to be serviceable aka - "disposable small appliance". if you do dispose of it take it to a qualified recycle organization for Freon products.

BUCKET DOES NOT FILL WITH WATER


It could be the coil & condensor are dirty.

Or it could be that the humidity level is below what the unit will work at. Below 50% humidity and or 70 degrees Fahrenheit, it generally will not do much.
