Prevent E-Waste:

Recycling computers and electronic equipment in Denver can be done with a small dose of determination. Most recycling centers are located in industrial areas of the metro area and charge a small fee for services. Many recycling centers are open on Saturdays, and offer pickup of equipment for an additional fee. Staples also offers free recycling of computers, printers and other electronics at their locations in the Denver metro area.

Recycling computer equipment benefits the environment because e-waste contains hazardous materials such as lead, mercury and other heavy metals. Recycling old computers rather than throwing them away can also protect against identity theft because recycling centers can destroy the data on the hard drives.

While many people throw away cell phones without a second thought, the lithium batteries used in many cell phones can be hazardous and should be recycled. If you are looking to get rid of cathode-ray tube (CRT) televisions (i.e. not flat-screen televisions), be aware that Goodwill no longer accepts donations of CRT televisions.
