Lastly, do not toss it into the junk heap to fill landfills. There are
recycles who strip old electronics down and recycle the vast majority of
the pieces. The one we have
<http://www.nextsteprecycling.org/locations> resuses what they can,
gives away pallete loads to those who need it, sells some, and puts
almost nothing into the landfill.

It is not this day!
