(Washington, D.C. – September 2, 2008) Ever wanted to tell EPA what you thought on an environmental topic? Each week, you have your chance in the EPA blog, Greenversations. Each question is an open-ended blog entry; please share your thoughts as comments.

This week's question:

After you buy a new computer, what do you do with the old one?
Last week, we asked what you think about when you buy a new computer. Now we want to know about the old ones. You can "ecycle," donate them to charity, give them to a friend, etc. Some people store them because they're not quite sure what to do.

¿Después que compra una computadora nueva, qué hace con la computadora vieja?
La semana pasada, le preguntamos sobre lo que piensa al comprar una nueva computadora. Ahora queremos saber qué hace con las viejas. Puede reciclar los aparatos electrónicos al donarlos a entidades caritativas, o a algún amigo, etc. Algunas personas las almacenan porque no tienen claro qué hacer con ellas.
