The South Pacific County Humane Society has launced a new program that combines a green initative with the no-kill shelter's mission to help animals in Pacific County. The shelter is accepting electronic devices and used printer cartridges for recycling. The Humane Society website has more information and says the E-recycling effort, "including empty inkjet and laser cartridges, used cell phones, laptops, MP3 players, PDAs and the like", isn't just about adding another revenue stream for the operation of the shelter. "The money that comes in to the Shelter is of course greatly appreciated and much needed; an extra benefit is doing something constructive for the environment by preventing these items and their often-toxic components from reaching landfills." Drop off locations include the Shelter located at 330 Second Street NE, The Adrift Hotel and Spa at 1517 Pacific Ave. N, and the Ocean Beach Area Chamber office at 1715 Bay Ave. #1
