Apparently we should leave monitors in mori's area. In my area, they have a specific "electronics waste day" I managed to sleep thru last years but it is worth a call to town hall. OT:Not sure why municipalities are shouldered with the disposal fee for these items. A recycling charge should be built into the purchase price or the vendor should support some sort of program. http://www.apple.com/environment/recycling/

Well, they don't call it that here, but that's basically it. A couple weeks advance notice is given via green flyers.

Thanks to all the replies. SXG6: thanks for the link; we found a place which might take our old CRT thru that link. Thank you!

I gave all my CRT monitors and televisions to a local charity. Hopefully, someone is still getting some use out of them instead of clogging a landfill. Makes for an easy disposal.
