As a fundraiser for the Rappahannock Animal Welfare League, RAWL board members Laurie Smith and Mark Reinhardt have organized an electronics recycling drop off at RAWL’s shelter (160 Weaver Rd., Amissville, next to the landfill) from 9 to 1 this Saturday (May 18). By the time you get there, Mark, good sport that he is, should have extricated himself from this exemplary pile of unwanted gear – so bring more: old computers, phones, cables, game consoles, cables and wiring, flat-screen monitors or TVs, speakers, tools. Don’t bring CRT monitors, non-flat-screen TVs or floor-model copiers (the last for the sake of Mark’s continued good health, as well as the recycling company’s rules, which you can check out at alcrecycling.wordpress.com). Proceeds benefit the RAWL shelter.
