As we enter the holiday season, it's important to tidy up the house in order to decorate and entertain. There is a small room in my house where things tend to collect. It's kind of like that room in the Harry Potter series, the Room of Requirement. There many interesting things, including some super-cute little cards hand-made by my children when they were little, but there are also many things I'd rather not think about, like those old laptops that still have some beloved photos.

I started to investigate what to do with the old computer equipment, knowing it needs to be "cleaned" and then recycled somewhere. Did you know there is a non-profit computer recycling place in Baton Rouge, the Capital Area Corporate Recycling Council, known as CACRC. CACRC provides low cost refurbished computers to nonprofit, seniors, low income families, veterans and others.They also provide non-profits with electronic equipment at very low prices as well as technical support.

Here is a list of items they will accept for recycling on their website: http://www.cacrc.com/what-we-recycle/
