The free electronics recycling event is sponsored by the City of Reno, City of Sparks, Washoe County, University of Nevada Reno, Whole Foods, Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority, Radiant Technologies, West Coast Contractors, New2u Computers and IVGID Waste Not.

Working electronics that are dropped off at the end of the month will be refurbished, repaired and resold by New2U Computers. Anything that can no longer be useful will be sent to a highly qualified company in California for recycling. New2U Computers is a local non-profit organization that sells refurbished computers at rock-bottom prices. The money they earn is then used to fund programs for the disabled in Northern Nevada.

Nice service and it's tax deductable at that! I bet they will be seeing a lot move televisions due to the conversion in February.

Oh I am sure they will get ambushed with TV's. At least I hope they will. I would not want to see them thrown in the trash!
