If you have any old electronics sitting around your house and don't know what to do with them, Saturday was the day for you. It's called ECO Day, or, Electronics Clean Out.

Volunteers from Goodwill were stationed at the Friendly City Food Co-Op collecting old electronics.

It's the third year for ECO Day which focuses on recycling computers and appliances people don't use anymore.

Over 28 thousand pounds have been donated at past ECO Days.

Lou Lepping, the Outreach and Education Coordinator at the Co-Op said it gives people an easier and greener way of getting rid of those things that don't belong in landfills.

"People seem really interested in keeping the toxic chemicals out of our landfills. We're trying to green our Earth a little for the future generations and hopefully some of this stuff can go to a good home in the future."

Because the clean out days have been so successful over the past two years, the event expanded to new locations this year. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
