This event falls on Earth Day weekend for a reason. It's all about thinking responsible by preventing dangerous toxins from entering the environment through landfills. This is the 5th time iPoint (Information Point Technologies) will host their Annual Free Flowers for Towers event where participants who recycle old computer parts receive a $5 Fort Collins Nursery gift certificate.

“Flowers for Towers” will take place on Friday, April 20 and Saturday, April 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. There are no recycling fees. Items can be dropped off at iPoint’s office located at 135 West Swallow, Bldg. A in Fort Collins. Recyclable items include: PC towers, laptops, servers, copiers and scanners. (Computer monitors and printers are excluded.)

I.T. Refresh will be onsite. They are a local, full service, e-Steward certified recycler that specializes in recycling electronics responsibly. Each PC or server dropped off for recycling will have its hard drive wiped clean or destroyed by I.T. Refresh for free. This is a great savings to participants. Local recycling centers charge up to $15.00 to recycle a laptop.
