Hi Barbara -- come on out! This type of program has been an annual or semi-annual event for the last 2 or 3 years -- very helpful to us, and helpful to the environment and landfills, too. MA won't be far behind, I expect.

I think these kinds of collection events are great. We have one in our area twice year for household chemicals  and related.

Lottie,

I wish we had one of these places in my area. Well! I am not sure if we have one. I guess I will have to research it to find out.

Funny that you should mention this. Most folks just dump their old electrics in the circular file...

Good morning, Trey -- these events are very popular here, but we don't have them (yet) for household chemicals or paint. We need to drive those to a waste facility Since that's not so convenient, guess what lurks around in our storage areas?

Esperanza, keep your eyes out--more and more communities provide this service.

Michael, I know you're right -- but that's a big issue in our landfills -- lots of metals and toxic gunk seep into the soil and the water. Plus, a lot of the materials can be reclaimed and reused.

Lottie: I see these all over and boy do I need to get rid of some old stuff (computers from our old office when hubby and I ran a mortgage company, etc.) But here's the rub - there's confidential information on some of the hard drives and I really need something to wipe them totally clean and make sure everything is totally destroyed before I recycle them. If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know. Some of the computers are pretty old too so I'd need something that works on even Windows 95!

That's a problem, isn't it Cari? We've had a paper shredding day, where the equipment shredded floppy disks, and I had a TON of old ones sitting around - that was awesome.

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Serving San Francisco and the Silicon Valley (Pacific Union International) over 8 years ago

Absolutely! If only we could shred a hard drive! ;-) I know there is software that can totally erase all data but I just need to look into it further and hope it can work on my older systems. I would feel so much freer to get that stuff out of my garage. I truly believe in clutter being a deterrent to maximizing your potential.

Wish I had the answer for you, Cari. When you figure it out, please post!
