KINGMAN - The Mohave Community College Computer Club will hold an old computer and electronic equipment recycling drive from 8 a.m. to noon Oct. 25 on the Kingman campus. The drop-off point is the computer lab parking lot. All types of computer-related equipment are welcome, including computers, monitors and PC accessories. Small household appliances and televisions cannot be accepted. All donations are tax-deductible, and receipts will be available. The collected material will be trucked to Westech Recyclers of Phoenix, which donates 2 cents per pound back to MC4 for use toward club projects. More than 16,000 pounds of equipment was collected last year.
MC4 will also hold a local area network computer gaming competition between Henry Campus in Bullhead City and Neal Campus in Kingman on the same day at 5 p.m. in the computer labs. The featured games will be "Halo," "Unreal Tournament" and "Battlefield 2." Those taking part can bring their own XBox systems or computers to compete with the other players or use the college-owned computers in the computer labs.

Entry fee is $6 a person to go toward pizza and drinks, or if a gamer brings two cans of food for the local food banks, the pizza and drinks are free.
