They Have No Idea What They're In For…

I’m all over this!

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) – Don’t be so quick to toss out your old PCs, fax machines or digital cameras — office supply retailer Office Depot is offering to recycle one electronic product a day for free all through the summer, according to a published report Tuesday.

USA Today reported that the recycling program offered by Delray Beach, Fla.-based Office Depot and its partner, Hewlett-Packard, is expected to run from July 18 through Sept. 6.

The offer includes all brands of electronics, and products including computer monitors, digital cameras, copiers, fax machines, cellphones, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and TVs that are 27 inches or smaller, the report said.

Customers can recycle one product a day through the duration of the offer, the paper said.Finally a place to empty the hardware graveyard that is my basement!!!

On a related note, I have a Dell monitor (19 inch) that seems to have a dead power supply. I talked with several of the computer shops I’ve had long standing relationships with, and no one fixes monitors anymore. Prices are so low on new and used monitors that it actually costs more to get one fixed than to just replace it with a new one…
