County Wide Electronics Recycling Event

Today started off too wet for garage saleing. That was good as we had planned to take a carload of unwanted electronics to be recycled. Here in the city of Madison, WI we have to pay a $10 fee to get rid old CPU's, monitors, laptops, or televisions. Today Dane County sponsored a free drop off day. The following two photos show what we took to be recycled. If you carefully count everything you can see we saved $100.
(When I put these three on the back seat I thought of our three daughters who used to ride in those seats.)

It took us about an hour to get to the drop off point even though there were eight lanes of cars!!!

It is estimated that by the time workers got everything packed away in 35 semitrailers the total load will approach 250 tons.

The weather dried out after that, so we garage sailed for 90 minutes, I went to UFO Club, took a tour of a neighborhood garden, attended an auction between my house and the garden tour, (where I did NOT bid on the Featherweight sewing machine), did some rust dyeing, dug some weed trees out of the yard, made diner and folded the laundry. I will sleep soundly tonight!!!
