Throwing Away Your Computer?

If you think you can just throw it in the trash, you're wrong. That would be really bad for the environment and bad for your check book. Occasionally, there are e-waste events around the city, but lucky for us, the City of LA has six S.A.F.E. Centers (Solvents, Automotive, Flammables, Electronics) that are open to the public a few days a week as a free service.

Today, we headed to the Sun Valley S.A.F.E. Center in the Northeast Valley. We don't head to the neighborhood of Sun Valley that often and wouldn't be surprised if you've never heard of it. It seems that the neighborhoods of this corner of the Valley are quite unknown. How often do people talk about Pacoima or Arleta? Does LVT mean anything to you?

Anyway, for more information on hazardous waste, the city's Bureau of Sanitation has all the know-how.
