Good suggestion, Gail. Fewer trips are better. :)

I think by "big items" Best Buy means huge TV's; I once brought a trunkload of electronic stuff for recycling and they took it all, a big monitor and several smaller but still substantial pieces. I'd take the lot and save yourself a trip.

Glad you mentioned that, Karen. I bought my iMac there - via Best Buy's website, then picked up in the store. I noticed a sign in the store about recycling. I was told that I could bring in 1 big item per day. So I will make multiple trips to take my G4, 2 CRTs, etc. The store is close to me, so that's simple. Also, out here anyway, I know of a Goodwill that will take all computer equipment, working or not. Seems to me there are (or used to be) instructions on Goodwill's site about wiping hard drives, assuming the thing boots up. Also, my city has occasional e-cycling events at City Hall, though they are every few months and don't always come at the time when I am ready to take something. I'm guessing other cities have similar programs.
