Accepted items: Cell phones, Tablets and E-readers, Laptops and desktop computer towers (no monitors), Power/charging cables and cords and Peripherals: external hard drives, keyboards, computer mice (no printers). A suggested donation of $5 is appreciated when dropping off your items to help cover event and recycling costs.
