Computer Innards


I was at Technical Knock Out a while back. They disassemble every part of a computer to be recycled, right here in the USA. This box of heat sinks caught my eye. Made of copper and aluminum , they keep a computer cool. Once demanufactured , the metal will be melted down and used again. Last year, TKO recycled over 169 TONS of metal alone. Their total recycling of all components reached 1, 720,000 pounds last week. This is Alabama's leading electronic recyler!!!

Very impressive statistics!

Cool abstract as well.

BTW, I usually heat things using a stove ... not a sink -:)

This is fascinating. I wold never have guessed the subject. The aluminum one with the fork shapes really pulls me in. Very good work.

I've been getting better about recycling my old electronics. I used to just trash them. It's good to see more places pop up around the U.S. for this purpose.

And, it seems they make a good location for some great photography as well.

That's like a double bonus!
