    Riverside's special holiday recycle fair is designed to give people a change to get rid of old computers and television.. and get a tax deduction for them. Saturday is the last day to make a deductible contribution for their 2011 taxes. (Published Friday, Dec. 30, 2011)

    Believe it or not, those prehistoric-looking electronics used to be vogue, and expensive.

    Now, they’re likely gathering dust and a non-profit in Riverside is asking residents to donate their electronic dinosaurs – with a perk.

    On Saturday, Dec. 31, from 9 to 2, residents can drop off their used electronics at Smart Riverside’s warehouse and get a tax deduction for the donation.

    Money the organization makes from selling the gold and copper in e-waste materials will go toward buying computers to low-income residents and providing free wireless throughout Riverside.
