The City is no longer hosting electronics recycling events in the library parking lot. Please go the the main City pages for information on weekday electronic equipment drop-off at the Public Works offices.
Saturday, April 21, 2007 from 10 am to 1:30 pm in the parking lot behind the Library.
Why? most electronic equipment contains potentially hazardous metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chromium.
Bring your broken computers, monitors, scanners, keyboards, modems, laptops, smaller TV’s, typewriters, fax and answering machines, phones, VCR’s, radios, stereos (no speakers) and tape players.
Questions, contact the Public Works Department 301-891-7633.
And if you stop in to the library you can check out PC World, look through our many computer books, or try out the public computers which use Linux and open source software. Even if you have a working computer at home, you might enjoy trying an alternative operating system as well as the Open Office suite - which is free, excellent, and works on Linux, Mac and Windows systems.Posted by library at April 16, 2007 07:43 PM
