    wasn’t there going to be an electronics recycling thing at a Fauntleroy church today? I thought I saw it mentioned earlier, but don’t see anything on the calendar. (have an old clearwire modem to get rid of)

    Yuri Levchenko that is an AWESOME photo! WOW.

    if anyone has a good-used-still-working-well-TV that doesn’t weigh 1,000 lbs, please consider re-use instead of recycle; I need a TV that works well; my 20+ yrs old giant TV is slowly dying

  • sam-c April 25, 2015 (3:03 pm)

    Diane- Maybe check goodwill? who knows. We just dropped off our 22 year old tv there because it was dying and the sound was deteriorating (getting weird and static-y). the good will drop off was listed as a e-cycle site. now we have our 10 year old tv to rely on, and hanging on the extra dtv converter just in case.

    thanks WSB, we’ll drop off the stuff tomorrow.

    thanks; yes goodwill is always an option; just thought it would be nice if someone could give their working TV to a person who can use it, instead of recycling
