  1. Hi – our block association would like to rally residents to bring their electronics to your recycling event — would that be okay?

    Thanks!!

  6. s darby, you should check out Freecycle or Craigslist, where people are always giving away monitors. they are generally CRTs, but hey, they are free….

  7. It looks like they are haveing a great turnout today (Sat.). We managed to get three apts here cleaned out with the help of a borrowed hand truck.
    Thanks for helping get this organized.
