Old Hardware Disposal System

Dave has created a wiki page for us to update with our system for disposing of old hardware.


We had said that we would discuss this in the mailing list. With the party coming up this is a rather pressing issue.

I haven't seen any discussion of /where/ to take electronic waste.
Some of you undoubtedly know this already, but Hamilton County
sponsors an electronics recycling program at TRG (in Kenwood now -
used to be in St. Bernard).


Now that I look at it, it says no business or non-profit items, but
when ever I've taken items there, they have not asked a lot of questions.

FYI, there is also a hazardous waste disposal drop-off down the street
on Spring Grove. I usually take paint and motor oil there.


In a totally unrelated note, that Etch-A-Sketch video was awesome.

This has been mentioned several times in meetings: http://www.cincinnaticomputercooperative.org/

They take Computers, CRT’s, and computer peripherals. They list all the stuff they take on their site, and the stuff they do not take as well.

I agree. The "Junk Rules" for getting rid of stuff and the "Where to
get rid of it" aspect are two separate, though closely related,

I have begun to compile a list of places to take equipment, and a
project on my todo list is to research these places and evaluate them.

As part of the "Free Geek Cincinnati" idea, I would like to see
equipment responsibly recycled rather than thrown in the dumpster.

Here is a thread where I've collected a few links on the Free Geek mailing list:


And here is the area on the wiki where I've been stashing stuff:


Not very organized right now I admit. But a good project to dive into
for someone with some time on their hands. Maybe someone could make a
simple table listing and comparing the different recyclers?


I started to fill in a wiki page: http://wiki.hive13.org/index.php?title=Resource_Disposal

I don't get it! Why would we need to know this? To get junk from them?

This is just a reminder that we are planning on voting on this system at this weeks business meeting: http://wiki.hive13.org/index.php?title=Junk_Rules

So if you have anything you want to change about it, then now is the time to bring it up for discussion.
