Would you go the extra mile to get rid of an old computer responsibly?

There was a massive electronics collection day this week in Washington, D.C., coordinated by asset disposition company Redemtech. The company hasn't reported yet on how much was taken in, but they did send this photo of a Capitol Hill employee who not only made a donation but carried it to the site via one of the greenest modes of transportation available, his bicycle.

Eric Joyce, Manager of Escalation Bureau, U.S. House of Representatives, rode his bike into the Capitol from Arlington, Va., with a desktop strapped to the back.

Some of the equipment collected from the drive (the stuff that is reusable) will be donated to Horton's Kids, a charitable organization in the D.C. area. Redemtech says it is teaming up with TechSoup to develop more programs that redeploy reusable technology collected through recycling drives to eligible non-profit organizations.

Here's an additional report from onsite.
