Snow and Gusty Wind Today - Poor Travel Conditions Expected

A Nor'easter  is expected to impact the region today, but the impact around the Capital Region looks to be on the lighter side, as the storm takes a more Easterly track. Snow will become steadier from SE to NW this morning, with snowfall of varying intensity through this afternoon and evening.  A gusty NNW wind from 15-20 mph at times will cause blowing and drifting of the very dry snow creating poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions at times through late tonight. General Storm accumulations in the Capital Region of 2-6" are expected, with higher amounts across western New England.

E-Waste Collection Event

GUILDERLAND -- Earth Day is coming up on Monday, but an event this weekend helped to not only protect the environment - but also your Bottom Line.

CBS 6 teamed up with Tri City Rentals and eLot Electronics Recycling to trash your tech for you, at Saturday's E-Waste Collection Event.

It was held at five different area locations, including Woodlake Apartments in Guilderland.

Items collected included old televisions, batteries and light bulbs - but also things like computers and cell phones - which harm your wallet, if you're not careful.

"As technology's evolving, it's extremely easy to steal someone's identity or take information off a hard drive," says Murray Massry of Tri City Rentals. "There's a lot of third parties that will remove information off a hard drive and they won't ask for identification that matches up to that hard drive."

But in this case, rest assured.

The companies say they follow the proper regulations, making sure that all hard drives and data storage devices are disposed of, and done so the right way.

"E-lot Recycling is mandated by the state, and they will be fined if the items are not destroyed within 'x' amount of time," Massry says.

The event was free, and open to the public.
