I think I missed the boat on Blog Action Day. However, it does not mean that I can't still bring attention to something from that event. Lifehacker had a post about donating old computer hardware. You clear up some storage space, save electronics from the scrap heap and help out people and organizations that could use the hardware.
I know some jurisdictions have introduced electronic recycling levies and things but I haven't heard about whether those programs are effective or having any impact. Looks like individuals will have to take responsibility for their own electronics.
