Acronym Update 06/22/07

Dear Friends,

…And now, the Autumn event you’ve all been waiting for,
Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority’s Hartford – area
Electronics Recycling Collection.

ONE DAY ONLY!! (see details below)

I’m bringing this event to your attention because I get asked frequently where people can recycle their old computers and electronics equipment. The CRRA has held these events in the Spring and Fall for several years now. It is a safe and free way to recycle these once great devices that have become paperweights, momuments, and in some cases – eyesores. The CRRA has traditionally served towns in central Connecticut, through its Mid-Connecticut project. You can find a list of these towns by clicking on the Mid-Connecticut link below. They also have a Bridgeport and Waterbury project that may serve the town you live in. Look on their website for complete details.

If you don’t live in a town served by CRRA, you should check with your town’s public works (or equivalent) department about electronics trash pickup. Furthermore, I know that Dell and Apple both offer to recycle your old computer for you when you purchase a new one.



Saturday, November 10, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.


CRRA Trash Museum, 211 Murphy Road, Hartford
