Expanding on the OS9 thread...
What do you do with your OLD Cpus and monitors these days??
We have a few pre-g3 machines that I need to dump, as well as some CRT monitors that are WELL past their useful lives.

Recycle, Donate, or just kick'em to the curb ???

What do you have?

I usually give away for their kids or grand kids or throw away. Few times a year we have recycle days here in NYC but for stupidity I don't understand all electronics are not accepted from businesses only from private users. I wish we recycled like they do in Europe. They have law that stores that sell electronics must accept them back and recycle.

What you can also do is to send back old mac to Apple to recycle if you buy new Apple. They have to take it. I think some others also accept old computers for recycling when you buy a new one.
