REUSE

Think about how you or someone else can use an item before sending it to the landfill. If it is broken, consider the quarterly Repair Cafes at the Burlingame Library where items are fixed free of charge. Consider listing items for sale or give-away on Craigslist or NextDoor, or donating them. Many places accept working electronic items: Goodwill, PARCA, & LifeMoves. Local business GreenCitizen in Burlingame is dedicated to responsible recycling, especially of electronics, and will accept both working and non-working items.
