E-M:/ FW: Free Computer Collection on October 15-East Lansing

Enviro-Mich message from "Julie Metty Bennett" <jmettybennett@pscinc.com>


Dell is offering consumers in Michigan a one-day, free computer 
recycling event, in partnership with Macomb County, Michigan State 
University, City of East Lansing, City of Lansing, Muskegon County, 
Great Lakes Downs, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and 
Michigan Department of Information Technology.

The event in our area will take place Saturday, October 15th, and the 
East Lansing location is at:
Michigan State University - East Lansing (In the parking lot at the 
corner of Kalamazoo & Harrison across from Breslin Center), 9 a.m. to 
3 p.m. Any brand of computer (CPU), monitor, printer, or other 
peripherals (mouse, keyboard, scanner, etc.) will be accepted. No 
other electronic equipment, such as telephones, televisions, stereos 
and appliances, will be accepted. Please remove all data from your 
computer's hard drive.

Recycling computers instead of disposing of them reduces the amount 
of waste that gets placed in our landfills.  Computers contain heavy 
metals including mercury and lead and the environmentally responsible 
approach is to recycle rather than simply land dispose or incinerate. 
Take this chance to clean out your attics, closets and garages and 
recycle your unwanted computers for free!

When possible, dropped-off equipment will be refurbished and reused - 
but cannot be considered a donation through this event. If residents 
are interested in donating working equipment to a local non-profit 
organization, please visit www.dell.com/recycling to find out how the 
National Cristina Foundation can give your unwanted computer a second 
life. Donated equipment must meet the minimum donation requirements 
outlined on Dell's website.

Attached is a flyer.  Feel free to printout and post.   Spread the 
word to your communities and at the workplace.
