    Please inform me when you have your next recycling for computers and other household electronics.
    My family and I have several computer odds and other house hold electronics that we would like to recycle somewhere ( it doesn’t cost a royal mint)
    If you would please let me know if you ever are going to be in the Mira Mesa area collecting recycling.
    Thank you.
