Recycling

I recently updated our television system to one of those wide-screen flat-panel led-lcd TV's.  I bought a 40" Toshiba, plus a Samsung DVD/Surround-Sound system to go with it.

The question then became, "How do you dispose of an 80lb outdated piece of consumer electronics?"

No one in the family seemed to want it.  Recycling centers actually charge $25 to $40 for Cathode Ray Tube disposal (depending on size).  Where else do you turn? . . . Craigslist!

Not only did it not cost me money to recycle it, but it sold within 10 minutes, was hauled away within an hour, AND they paid me $25!
