Southern California MacFair 2005
has announced plans to provide attendees with free disposal of their old computer equipment. That includes monitors, CPUs, fax machines, printers, servers, phone systems and “virtually any office electronics product,” according to the coordinators.
The arrangement has been made with ease e-waste Inc. to dispose of the old equipment — more than 5.5 tons of gear was tossed last year. All attendees that bring equipment to be recycled will receive a coupon for up to US$30 off a new Mac from L.A. Computer Company.
There will also be a charity cell phone drive, with proceeds to benefit the Junior Diabetes Research Fund. Attendees are welcome to bring obsolete cell phones to the recycling area on Saturday, November 5.
