The ABC13 E-cycling Drive was another huge success, as area residents came to properly recycle their used electronic equipment in a responsible manner. At this year's drive, we gathered recyclables from 1,320 cars, at an average of 165 cars per hour, with the help of 55 volunteers from five volunteer groups. But now that the drive has ended, what can you do if you didn't get a chance to bring your electronics to the Channel 13 Studios? There are other options.
