If you receive any new personal electronics this Christmas, consider recycling your old devices at The Basilica in January. There will be bins available to recycle old personal electronic devices, including cell phones, digital camera, MP3 players,  iPods, GPS, tablets and ink cartridges.  Contact Karen at 651-308-0507 for more information or to get involved in this effort.
