Everyday Tech: Recycling Technology
We love our computers and smartphones and gadgets until they stop working. Then these devices such as printers and monitors, not to mention the batteries and cables, often become electronic garbage. Gadgets aren't made to last, after all. No computer or phone maker is going to mind if you upgrade every year or two. In fact, they count on it. Consequently, all this junk ends up in the back of your closet or stored in your garage, collecting dust, because you aren't sure what to do with it. So on this episode of Everyday Tech, we'll discuss recycling technology with our guest, Jennifer Milner, State Recycling Coordinator with the MS Dept. of Environmental Quality.
