Electronic graveyards

Posted By on Sat, Jun 2, 2012 at 8:24 AM

When our faithful televisions, radios or iPods drop dead, they leave us to deal with their carcasses. The Consumer Electronics Association launched greenergadgets.org, which has ZIP code-specific lists of electronic recycling locations, as well as other helpful info, to help with these situations.

About 460 million pounds of electronics have been recycled since the CEA launched a recycling initiative in April 2011. A huge number, but it’s still short of the initiative’s goal to annually recycle 1 billion pounds of electronics by 2016.

Wanna contribute? Colorado has 82 drop-off locations, five of which are right here in Colorado Springs:

Best Buy
750 Citadel Dr. E.
3150 New Center Point
7675 N. Academy Blvd.

Staples
4520 Centennial Blvd.
2955 New Center Point

You can also plug your ZIP code into the nifty widget below.
