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

  • hi

    i was just wondering, I have been looking for a flat pannel, ( screened() monitor for monthes, is there any way i can get a free one at one of these events>

  • 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….

  • 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.
