“If Santa left you a new computer or laptop under the tree, you may be looking for a good way to get rid of your old one. Fortunately, the state’s largest non-profit computer refurbishing center, InterConnection, is based in Seattle. Depending on what you are getting rid of, InterConnection can either recycle or refurbish your computer. Refurbishing, they point out, is actually the greenest way to go.
InterConnection takes unwanted computers and turns them into something useful, which is particularly fortunate for Washingtonians not only because computers contain hazardous materials, but also because it is illegal for people in our state to put old computers in the trash,” quoting KING-5 News.
