Some may say that South Carolina is backwards in many ways, but in many ways this fair state is doing what it can to advance a more ecologically sound agenda (the incredibly stupid and pointless Incandescent Light Bulb Freedom Act bill notwithstanding. Write your legislators about this). I am all for this and try to get involved as much as possible. This is why I am volunteering with Keep the Midlands Beautiful this Saturday, April 30th from 8 a.m. through 3 p.m. at the SC State Farmer’s Market to collect all of the e-waste that we can handle! This event has no associated costs, and very little in restrictions in regards to what or how much can be recycled.

So spread the word and let everyone know that Saturday, April 30th is THE day! Take Friday night to order in some Chinese food and load the car up. The weather is going to be great Saturday, and I and many other great volunteers will be there, ready to take those old computers, TVs and more off of your hands!  There are also drop off points in the Upstate and in the Lowcountry of SC. Now is the chance to remove your spouse’s non working electronics from under the carport, once and for all! Oh wait, that’s just me that has that situation going on? That’s ok- it’ll be going, going, gone by the first of May!

Do you have a lot of e-waste, and will you be taking advantage of a community sponsored electronics recycling event in the near future? Tell me your thoughts on it!
