Don’t need it? Get rid of it!

Let’s face it: We’ve all got at least one hunk of electronic junk collecting dust on a shelf, in a closet or piled up in the garage.

 It could be an obsolete computer, an old cassette tape deck or even some sort of crazy barcode scanner that hooks up to your PC.

Most communities have specific rules about throwing away stuff like this, and you don’t want to get in trouble, do you?

Your Dallas Mavericks are coming to the rescue this Thursday, April 9 by hosting an Electronics Recycling Drive as part of their new Guard the Planet initiative.

The event at American Airlines Center F Parking lot (on the north side of the arena at All-Star Way and Houston Street) runs from noon until 8 p.m. They’re ready for all of your e-waste, including monitors, laptops, keyboards, mice, cell phones — heck, they’ll even take power cords off your hands. Mavs players Antoine Wright and Matt Carroll will be there from 6 to 7 p.m. to add some star power to the recycling effort.

There’s no charge for you, and you’ll walk away with something for your efforts: A coupon for a free meal at Genghis Grill and a chance to win tickets to a Mavericks game on April 13.

(Now, where did I stow all those Cue Cats?)

Took a bunch of stuff down there today. Good crowd at 2 p.m. and an amazing amount of electronics stacked up.

Obviously this is something that was sorely needed. Thanks for the heads up!
