Computer Recycling Eugene Oregon
Green Tech-"Going green" is a term we hear everywhere these days and for good reason. Recycling waste makes our resources more viable and helps sustain our beloved planet. For most of us, recycling has become part of our daily routines and in recent years the movement has expanded to include tech devices like phones and even computers. Today there are many ways you can get rid of your old hardware cheaply and easily and "go green" at the same time.
The only reason most people choose not to recycle is because of the extra effort that it takes, but recycling your old computer can be simple and time-efficient. Donating or selling your computer is a good way to prolong its use, even if the machine is obsolete to you. If you don't have a family member or friend that wants to take ownership, then you can venture out to local businesses, schools and even stores that refurbish old hardware. There are non-profit organizations all over the country that specialize in recycled electronics. With two convenient Eugene locations.
