You have a technology bone-yard of well-used electronics that no longer are operable, and the pile is getting larger. These items should not be “thrown in the trash”, but recycled.

Possibly the worst thing you can do is simply throw your used electronic equipment in the trash. Old TVs contain lead. Many new monitors and TVs contain mercury or cadmium. These chemicals pose environmental and health hazards. Besides, recycling such materials may help reduce the amount (32 comments)

Denver Real Estate Market - Is there another offer?
