Canberra Computer Recycling Event

Dumping computers willy-nilly without any thought on the impact on the environment is one issue that has been bothering me for a few years. So I was really excited when I discovered that DELL Computers and ANUgreen are running a computer recycling event on Saturday 26th May 2007.
Details are:

The ACT community is being invited to drop off their old computers for recycling at a carpark on the ANU – FREE of CHARGE!

What: DELL Recycling event
When: Saturday May 26th 2007, 9.00am until 3.00pm
Where: Lennox Crossing, carpark opposite University House

They are also looking for volunteers. If you want to help out, or just want further information, contact Millie Rooney (millie.rooney@anu.edu.au) or John Sullivan (john.sullivan@anu.edu.au). I suggest getting in contact with them to confirm the details of the event.

Edit: post updated with corrected times.

    this is a great idea, I wish we had regular access to similar events here in Sydney. And if we do… they’re not being marketed very well.

    It’s almost worth driving to canberra just to dispose of things properly… but then there’s the petrol use..!

  2. Hi Lisa, Paul from Dell here. We’ll be holding another event in Sydney soon but there are also other options available 365 days a year. For example, if you’re a home user and already own a Dell, we’ll recycle it for you for free. If you have another brand, choose a Dell next time you upgrade and we’ll recycle the old one for you for free. And, failing that, you can also take advantage of our paid recycling service. For more details, check http://www.dell.com.au/recycle. Cheers.

    The Dell Recycling Event commences at 9am and finishes at 3pm on Saturday. Are you able to change your sites to reflect that please. I am running the event, so have just viewed your site. Thanks for the advertising but we won’t be set up to receive until 8am.

    Regards
