The to-be-recycled pile in my basement disappeared this drizzly afternoon.
All of those 486 processors? Gone. Flatbed scanners purchased 6 presidential administrations ago? Met their reward. Somehow. Not sure of the specifics, but presumably someone comes along to the Electronic Recycling Station in Bolingbrook, pokes through the piles and harvests enough gigabytes to cobble together a computer named HAL that takes over Will County. Something like that. And I am all for it. So much better than hurling all of this junk into the landfill, which is just too irresponsible and guilt-inducing.
My thanks to Nancy, who told me in the beginning of the Great Basement Reclamation project that electronics could be dropped off at 299 Canterbury Lane, Bolingbrook, IL.
You can drop off batteries there, too.
Is that not the best?
