Computer Recycling Drive

Computer Heroes in Monroe is sponsoring a recycling drive for unused electronics this week.

Throwing away computers and other electronics can release hazardous chemical like mercury, lead, and cadmium into the environment, potentially contaminating both soil and groundwater. Residents of Monroe may bring their old computers and unused electronics to Computer Heroes, secure in the knowledge that the materials will be properly disposed of and recycled if possible by Resource Solutions.

There is no charge for the following items: LCD (flat screen) computer monitors, computer mice, CPU’s, laptops, keyboards, computer cords, circuit boards, UPS power strips, scanners, printer cables, printers, telephones, cell phones, fax machines, VCR’s, DVD players, remote controls, & stereo equipment. There will be a small fee of $10 for CRT computer monitors and copiers. Large televisions or appliances may require an extra fee. Please contact Computer Heroes for a price quote if you don’t see your item listed.

You may bring in the electronics to Computer Heroes on W 6th St in Monroe (near Monroe Furniture and Kutter Harley Davidson) anytime between 8 am and 5 pm this week.

Kudos to Josh and the crew at Computer Heroes for teaming up with Resource Solutions out of Madison and providing such a valuable service for those of us here in Monroe!
