  5. Hi Susan.

    I don’t see the note you’re referring to, but you can find electronics recycling events listed on our calendar here:

    The next one in Brooklyn (which also appears to be the last one in Brooklyn for 2010) will be on October 2nd at the New New York Green Street Fair in Carroll Gardens. We’ll also be there tabling, so stop by and say hi! And maybe we can figure out this tag thing. :)
