Buy a Corvette, Recycle Your Old Computer

You may have seen my story in today’s paper about Santa Fe’s plans to auction off 151 cars this Saturday at a city lot on 1142 Siler Road. Most were seized under a vehicle forfeiture program targeting repeat drunken drivers, and officials promise there’s more than a few good deals to be had.

People can drop off old computers, printers, cell phones, DVD players and other items at 1142 Siler between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.  at no charge. Keep Santa Fe Beautiful and Albuquerque Recycling Inc. are also participating.

For more information on the e-waste recycling event, call Gilda Montaño at 955-2215, e-mail or visit
