Evolu-TIC Outaouais will collect
the eWaste for recycling, and new this year, CompuCorps
will pick up some of the reusable material for their good causes.
There will be some revenue generated, as well, at a rate of $150 per metric tonne of items
accepted for disposal - so the big old heavy TVs and such are happily taken away.
The OPCUG thanks the museum for the permission to hold the event and to Doug Drouillard
for providing the technical support.
