Guest Host: Matthew Felling

It’s the byproduct of our national obsession with the latest gadgets and gizmos: tons of obsolete cell phones and computers lying in landfills, where they pose potential threats to the environment. Tech Tuesday explores new initiatives to re-use, recycle, and properly dispose of old gadgets, and explores the latest in recycling technology.
