Montgomery County Electronic Recycling Events for 2009

By Scott Roewer | March 3rd, 2009 | Comments »

As a professional organizer, I often find that my clients have dead electronic equipment cluttering their closets or their garages.  The e-waste is there because they do not know what to do with it.  I appreciate they don’t want to simply toss the TV, computer, or microwave in the trash!  Most would agree, that our […]

Recently I worked with a client who lives in Silver Spring, Maryland. We’ve been clearing out her basement in order to create a home office and exercise area. In the process we discovered a box full of jeans. No, the box wasn’t full of Earnest Sewn, 7 For All ManKind, or Diesel. We had the […]

Ten cities doesn’t sound like very many, but it includes over 1500 branches. If the program is successful it could go nationwide. You can recycle your cell phones, PDAs, MP3 players, […]
