Got electronics clutter? I just found 2 old laptops, a laptop keyboard, 12 laptop hard drives, and 1 CPU in my office! It’s not as bad as it sounds. I used the hard drives for a presentation I did in a former life. Well, maybe it is as bad as it sounds.
The good news is that the counties in the DC Metro area schedule special recycling events in addition to their usual drop off days. So, if you’re like me and have a few electronic items to get rid of, check out the next event in Montgomery County…details below…there’s a shredding event, too!
