The East Tennessee Technology Access Center -- http://ettac.org -- accepts donations of working computers, iPads, and other electronic devices for use by people with various forms of disabilities. A webpage at http://ettac.org/donate.html outlines their requirements and what they use the computers for. (They are likely to modify the devices to meet the needs of specific clients.) It indicates that computers need to have a processor speed of at least 500 Mhz. Oak Ridger Louise McKown, who works at ETTAC, described their requirements as "XP or better."

 

Disposal of smoke detectors with radioactive elements in them — Ionization smoke detectors containing less than 1 μCi of Americium-241 are exempt from Nuclear Regulatory  Commission regulations.   This means that  Federal Law does not  prohibit  the disposal of these detectors in the normal municipal waste stream.  There are, however, a number of State and local regulations and/or laws that do prohibit disposal of ionization smoke detectors in the municipal waste stream. In Oak Ridge, disposal in the trash is permitted

Comments

Is there a location in Anderson County near Oak Ridge where I can find items like pieces of concrete blocks used in construction to recycle? I am in need of broken concrete blocks to fill in some holes on my property.
