High Tech Harvest in the Heart of Silicon Valley

comp_rec.jpgElectonic waste is a growing problem all over the globe, but computer recycling is quickly gaining ground to deal with it. GreenCitizen and Acterra, two bay area groups, have teamed up to hold a “High Tech Harvest” in Palo Alto on November 11th. The educational event will allow people to drop off unwanted electronic for recycling. Proceeds from the recycling will benefit Acterra.
This local event is taking place in the heart of Silicon Valley, but there’s no reason similar events can’t take place in any town. The GreenCitizen Center is located at 3180 Park Blvd. in Palo Alto (behind Fry’s Electronics) and will host the event from 5:30 to 7:30pm on Friday, Nov. 11.
