(2) Southeastern Data, at 142 Park Road in
Oviedo, FL 32765 (Off Alafaya Trail, just north
of E. McCulloch Road);
phone 407-971-4654 Their hours are 8:00 am til 5:00 pm, Monday thru Friday.
They've been very helpful in allowing CFCS members to drop off most recyclables with no service charge, for quite some time; greatly appreciated! SE Data offers free recycling with the exception of monitors and terminals with cathode ray tubes, CRTs and terminals which are $3.00 each. TVs with cathode ray tubes need to be evaluated, but most are $0.60/lb. Displays with LCD/LED screens are accepted at no charge and most likely can be purchased, working or not. You can come by anytime, but a heads up call would be appreciated for large loads. Also, do let them know you are involved with CFCS.
SE is also a great place to pick up parts and accessories, and they accept trade-ins against purchases and they will even outright purchase your components. Their hours are 8:00 am til 5:00 pm, Monday thru Friday.
Southeastern Data is ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certified and offers shredding of hard drives, tapes, optical media, cell phones and small electronics at their facility and on site. And, since they will do also accept items that DO NOT work, they do truly fit in both Category “A” AND “B!!”
(3) Orlando Recycles, Inc.
They are at located at 5014 Forsyth Commerce Road, #4, Orlando, FL, 32807, just off Forsyth, about 1/2 mile east of 436 and south of Colonial. Their hours are from 9:30 to 5:30. You do not need to call them.
They have changed their policies in that they will no longer be able to provide us with any revenue, and will
no longer be able to pick up materials from my house. They are still a viable place to recycle, and there is no charge to you for items like CRT's, TV's.
You can take things on your own - just go there. No need to say you are involved with CFCS; just leave your items with them if they are open. AND, you can even go when they are closed - they have an outdoor Drop Box there, al-ways open and available! Since they do also accept items that DO NOT work, they do truly fit in both Category "A" AND "B!!"

(3) Recycling Directory: http://earth911.com/
This is a directory containing information for recycling over 240 different products that are free for consumers. There are over 127,000 locations and programs that people can search to find local recycling and disposal resources. Thanks to Mike Ungerman and Hewie Poplock for sending this to me - includes County places, and for example - Staples, many others, by ZIP. It is thorough! (However, what is not mentioned on this site, for exam-ple, is that Staples just mentioned CHARGES $10 EACH for any PC, Printer, CRT or LCD, even Hard Drive! Only small items, such as mice and key-boards are free. So I would say 'caveat emptor' applies! Call or go first, as I did!
