Saving Laptops from E-Recyclying

My desk area is a royal mess, and I’m being yelled at to clean up. I managed to clear off enough of my work table to build a pile of… new work! We’re trying to save these 24 laptop computers from the Greenbelt Electronics Recycling program, which happens this Saturday morning, July 25. If you would like to learn how to test and rebuild an old Windows laptop into a usable Linux system(*), drop in and pick one out. For more info about electronics recycling, please visit the City website. *: We have a couple old Mac laptops too.

Sunday Arts Program is UP to Recycle


(Moose!) Put down that hammer or paintbrush and join us on the afternoon of Sunday, July 19, to take apart and up-cycle components into modern works of art. If you’re more of a de-constructionist, this is also your type of activity. Crack open stuff to see what makes it tick, turn, or burn. Then hand the pieces off to the artist in your family. Short on family members? Come meet others in the community who just might share some of your interests.

Re-Build a PC Workshop

There is no signup for this free event, just show… (Read More)
