Here at the family shop, we had an outdated computer monitor hanging around that was not being used. It was still in working condition, so I knew it didn’t necessarily need to be recycled yet (and it definitely wasn’t going to a landfill)… but what should we do with it?
I asked my network on twitter and got some GREAT responses!
@WasteDiverter, whose bio reads “Connecting those who have excess stuff with those who could use it”, sent me a great link: City of Raleigh – Local Computer Recycling/ReUse Options.
The Purple Elephant Computer Factory for Kids will be receiving this donation from us this week! Their mission is “to bridge the educational and rehabilitative needs of children, and adults, by placing computer technology directly into the home”. Sounds like a great use for this monitor to me!
