Talking Trash

(09-17-2008)

Trash is trash, right? Not necessarily so. With the fast rate of technology changes, "technotrash" has become a worldwide problem. Few laws are in place governing how technology waste is handled. The impact of the amount of trash generated by computers and their accessories on the environment is not yet known. It is up to us, as consumers, to dispose of technotrash in a responsible way.

The Adams State College EARTH group and ASC Community Partnerships have teamed up again to provide a secure and environmentally safe way of recycling technotrash. ASC Community Partnerships has contracted with GreenDisk to safely and securely destroy your old data, recover reusable components, and recycle all of the rest of your accumulated technotrash. Greendisk technotrash cans will be located at Computing Services, School of Business and Community Partnerships (corner of Main & Edgemont Streets) on the Adams State College campus for individuals to deposit everything from old cell phones, CDs, cables, cords, diskettes and laptops. Please call ASC Community Partnerships for more detail at 719-587-8209.
