There are boxes in the Secretary’s office to recycle your ink jet printer cartridges, iPods, digital cameras, laptop/notebook computers, digital video cameras, and cell phones. Often times it is clear these objects should not go to the landfill, but the question is where do they go? These collections are year round and here for your convenience.
