This Week's Challenge: February 26 - March 4
Join the movement to drastically reduce the amount of waste UI sends to the landfill. From cell phones to televisions, and computers to tablets, electronics play an important part in our lives. While they provide a valuable service to us, they can become a burden once they've reached the end of their useful lives. This week, learn how you can minimize your electronic waste, find ways to reuse electronics if they still have life left, and find out how to recycle them when needed.
