YMCA e-Waste Fundraiser

My nine year old upstairs neighbor is participating in a fundraiser with his YMCA. Their goal is to send kids to jujitsu Summer Camp. When I found out what they were doing for their fundraiser I nearly burst out of my skin with excitement. They are doing a free e-waste collection! I have a box of electronic stuff that just doesn't work anymore. I can't take it to DI or Goodwill, but I haven't figured out where to recycle e-waste or how much it costs. Then, my neighbor knocks on my door and tells me all I have to do is give it to her (the mom) and she'll take it the YMCA. Hallelujah!!!

If you live in the Sac area I encourage you to take advantage of this de-junking opportunity!
