That shiny electronic gizmo from 5 or 10 years ago is now toxic waste. Where can you give it to a new home where it will be appreciated, or dispose of it properly?

Each year around Earth Day there's an open recycling event. The 2013 date is Saturday, April 27, 9am-2pm at Pioneer High School, 601 W. Stadium Blvd.

For reuse check with Maker Works,  All Hands Active and Grange Junior Makers - items with motors are particularly reusable.

In Ferndale, there's Motor City Free Geek.
