Orange County Computer Monitor Recycling and Disposal

The faster that companies improve our technology, the quicker we want to get our hands on the new gadgets. Whether that means upgrading your cell phone or switching computers you’ve probably got several pieces of e-waste being kept around your home. E-waste or electronic waste is pretty much anything that needs to be plugged in for power (or recharging) that you’re no longer using. Do you really need to keep a hold of that out dated equipment?

You should know that e-waste can leave a trail of hazardous byproducts in its wake when it isn’t properly disposed of. E-waste contains heavy metals such as lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium, mercury and zinc. Those can all seep into the dirt we plant food on and the water we drink. Nobody wants that. That’s why you’ll often hear about community groups sponsoring an e-waste drop off day.

The most recent of these types of events was sponsored by Lexington Junior High School and All Green Electronics. They had a single collection a few weeks ago on a Saturday morning. If you missed the drop-off day don’t feel guilt. It’s not easy working your schedule around a small window of opportunity like that. Especially when you have to do all the loading and driving.

Spring Cleaning Tips in Orange County California

Smile! It’s time to give your home a good spring-cleaning. No smile? Well, that’s understandable. Doing the kind of thorough floor to ceiling cleaning in a home can be a bit of drudgery but it doesn’t have to be like that. The key is to keep your eye on the prize and that’s in a home that is sparkling and free of clutter. Getting a little outside help wouldn’t hurt either.

First of all, set aside the time to do the job right. Give yourself a couple of hours on a day when there will be no other distractions. If you can’t enlist your family in helping you get the job done then kick them out of the house for the day. After you’ve put together your cleaning supplies, don’t forget to put together your favorite music play list. The work will go a lot quicker when you’re moving to the beat of your favorite tune.

A good spring-cleaning means getting at all the areas which are neglected through most of the year. These would be places like ceiling fans, window treatments and ceiling corners. If you’ve got blinds, they should be washed. If’ you’ve got drapes send them to the cleaners.
