Got an old computer thats ready to be rebooted to the junkyard? Dont be a polluter -- send it to Shawn Kasner for recycling.
Kasner, 34, has launched E Waste Electronic Recycling, a business that strips computers and other electronic gear of their components for reuse.
A lot of people are starting to realize the necessity of not throwing their old computers in landfills, Kasner says.
He notes that the cumulative effect of trashing millions of obsolete computers has made electronic waste a topic of national concern.
Kasners business is located at 515 Franklin in Traverse City, where he and his partner, Brandon McMaster, recycle outdated monitors, keyboards, computers, scanners, printers and copiers, dead or alive.
