Thanks Meridith But I'm just repeating what the office of O. C. Garza said when I had to dispose several old computers,printers, monitors etc.
Thanks for info.
Mike, as I understand it the city is going to host an E-recycling Day at some point in the future. I'm not sure when, but will definitely devote an Earth Friendly column to it once details have been nailed down.
Also, many manufacturers have e-recycling programs of their own. For instance, Dell will send you a prepaid shipping label to send old equipment to them for recycling. A complete list of manufacturers and their recycling programs: http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/assistanc...
I think the city should reopen the E- Waste recycling center... While Best Buy will give you a credit for your E-Waste; it is limited to two items per day. I would hate to think that people are burying their E-waste in their trash can. The city spokesman said it was too expensive for them to reopen the recycle center. I guess he should know.
NYC is looking for ways to start converting their trash into fuel, and have a long range plan for the private taxicabs to replace their current models with hybrids.
I know a businessman that uses both sides of copy paper for rough drafts and interoffice memos.
The main thing , the city should be commended for taking action.
Conserving space is also another option to green a house or business. There are many cool and innovating new product designs like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAa6bO... that save space via multi-function furniture. Very cool!
Even in the field of business, going green reduces cost because waste is limited. One example of green being cheaper is the choice of paper you buy for copy machines. Yes, you can buy the more costly recycled paper, but if you cannot afford this try buying paper that weighs less. You know the thinner kind and use this for the majority of printing and limit the use of heavy paper for when you really need it.
