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.

Why does my sony KDF-50WE655 tv turn off after a few seconds when u turn it on?


Unless you are a qualified TV technician, the problem is not something that you can fix. Depending on the current value of the TV, and whether or not that it's still under warranty, your choices are to take it to the nearest authorized Sony repair depot to get it fixed, or to replace it (and responsibly recycle the old electronics).

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>

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.

My Krups F880 4238 (Vivo) which is just over one year old leaks aound the dispensing cap when activated to deliver coffee. Is there a seal which might need replacing? Thankyou . Michael Hill


Hello,
I have the same coffee machine, same problem. there is a black ring rubber seal. Mine is broken and I'm trying to buy a new one. There are a few places to get them from but they either charge quite a lot for P&P or small delivery charge, or only accept a strange kind of credit card that I don't have. If you have any luck getting one, let me know. : - )

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the keyboard.
Take it to a computer-store, and purchase a replacement.
Give them the old keyboard, and ask them to responsibly "recycle" the old keyboard.

Will not turn on. i have tried different outlets different cords and different computer.. it will not turn on


There are no "user-serviceable" parts inside a LCD monitor.

So, all you can do is to take it to a qualified TV/video technician, for trouble-shooting. Or, just responsibly recycle it, and buy a new one. Some stores may give you a "trade-in" on the old one, because the LCD screen itself may be OK, i.e., the problem is in the "electronics".
