I can't believe how easy this is.

The technology just keeps getting better and better so we replace our electronic devices with cheaper, smaller, more powerful.

The problem is we end up with a bunch of old useless (to us) devices. You can’t just throw them away because all those silicon chips and circuits are toxic in the waste dump. What to do?

I found this web site, Recycle for Breast Cancer program. They recycle all sorts of electronic devices. Supposedly they make a contribution to fight breast cancer for every item recycled. The site was a little fuzzy on the facts: how much, to what organizations, etc.

But what I like is they send you a pre-paid address label! How easy is that? Now I can get rid of my old Nokia with a clear conscience.
