i figured out how to do it!
there's a button!
a purple, candy-like button!*
i didn't know this, but as of a full year ago, Dekalb county has set up a permanent electronics recycling center, as opposed to the periodic day of collection. Specific listed below.
also, if you don't live in or near Dekalb county, Mygreenelectonics.com
lets you plug in your zip code to find recycling centers. apparently best buy and staples, among others, take recyclables, and best buy even takes used appliances.
And old DVD's and VCR tapes can be shipped to Ecodisk or Greendisk
, if you're so inclined.
Though, i find that FREECYCLE.ORG
is a great way to Re-Use your stuff, cuz people like your old shit if it's free. also a good way to GET free shit.Dekalb Recycling Center:

*that reminded me of Ren and Stimpy, which reminded me that i recently discovered that the guy that does the voice of stimpy also does just about every freaking great voice on Futurama, and is in almost every animated thing put on tv or in a theater these days.
