Kiwis can get rid of their unwanted computer bits and still be nice to the environment this Saturday with the country's annual computer recycling day.

Hard drives, monitors, keyboards, printers, games consoles, mobile phones and other computer gear can be dropped off at collection points in 28 cities between 9am and 3pm, where they will be disposed of in an environmentally sustainable way.

There is no charge for the recycling. A full list of accepted waste is available here.

Wellingtonians can get rid of computer gears at the Westpac Stadium car park. Aucklanders should use they Tamaki campus of the University of Auckland drop-off spot, while Christchurch has a drop-off at the Papanui Club.

The annual "eDay" is organised by the Computer Access Trust.
