My wife and I are getting ready to move, and I always begin the packing process by throwing away anything I can.  I happen to have an old PlayStation that doesn't work anymore, and I had planned on just throwing it in the dumpster sometime this week.  Turns out, I have to recycle it instead.

Starting July 1st, Coloradans will have to find a different way to get rid of those old, broken electronics.

Under the ban, Colorado residents will no longer be able to throw old or unwanted electronics, known as e-waste, in the trash. While phones can still be thrown away, prohibited items include television sets, laptops, tablets, DVD players and video game consoles.


Don't get me wrong, I love how the community is being so proactive with the environment; but I was really looking forward to just chucking that old, busted PlayStation and being rid of it lickety-split.  Instead, I'l have to drop it off at an approved recycling plant.  Oh well, I guess I'll just have to learn to be less lazy!
