Joan, great job spreading the word for e-cycling in the Denver area. I like that you point out some items have a fee associated with them. Important to know and come prepared.

Hi Joan!  Great information to share! I just finished a CE and electronic information policy for brokerages. One thing people need to remember about disposing of e products is to clean it first! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Debb, I would certainly be upset sitting in line waiting to drop off this stuff, and finding out they don't accept some items, or did not bring checks/or cash.

Cathy Criado nice to see you --- have not seen you in FOREVER.    At these events, Techno Rescue ensures they will erase your hard drives safely so no personal data is compromised, thankfully.
