Does anybody know where I can get rid of a printer? It needs a new printer head and it's not worth it. I just don't want to throw it into the garbage.

The price of printers new make them disposable. A new print head will cost more than it's worth. Maybe someone can make use of the ink if it's a inkjet. Other than that, it's not really worth it.

from the gone-gone-gone dept.

For the past 8 years, Clean North has hosted semi-annual Computer Recycling events where, for a small fee, local residents could drop off their unwanted e-waste (computers, peripherals and other small electronic items).

Clean North wishes to inform the community that we are not planning to carry out this event in 2008.

Community Living Algoma (with the assistance of Clean North and the City) will be opening a new Community Recycling Depot at 285 Wilson Street. The scheduled opening date is April 17. This will be a year-round operation open Tuesday to Friday 8:30 to 4:30 and on Saturdays from 8:00 to 1:00. A small recycling fee will be charged for each computer system to help cover transportation costs.

In addition to unwanted computer systems, you will also be able to drop off other small electronic items (calculators, Mp3 players, VCR, CD players, etc), inkjet and toner cartridges, cell phones, and clean/dry Styrofoam (expanded polystyrene).

Clean North invites the entire community to support this environmental initiative. Please watch the media for further information about the grand opening!

Clean North would also like to remind Sault residents that as our thoughts shift to spring cleaning, that we seriously consider all of the alternatives to disposal before sending anything to landfill. One of the simplest alternatives is to give items away through a "freebie" ad in a local paper or at a website such as SaultFreeCycle. You can also place items at the edge of your property with a sign saying "FREE".

I hope this information helps.
