We often took trips to Alameda County Computer Recycling Center to get rid of various computer and video equipment. Before they used to charge a small fee, now they have funding from the electronic recycling act so now you have no more excuses on holding onto your old computer because you don't know how to keep it from the landfill.

However, what we were left with were boxes of VHS tapes. A few were personal memories but alot of them were just tapes of shows before there was tivo. And we have boxes of old zip and floppy disks as well. What to do with that? Fortunately, there's Green Disk's Technotrash cans.

If you have 20lbs worth of stuff you can ship them the box yourself and pay a small processing fee. Or you can order one of their Technotrash cans (35lbs and 70lbs). You can toss in a whole bunch of stuff with your shipping fee already paid for. They ensure that your data will be sufficiently destroyed and what can be recycled will be recycled.
