Hazardous Wastes

Rod Miller from California writes in about hazardous wastes, and he's not talking the Daily Giz Wiz podcasts.  Back in Episode 819, Dick talked in the Letters Section about scrapping a GE microwave oven with a misbehaving door.  In California, used electronics are considered hazardous wastes which cannot be disposed of in the regular trash streams.  He recommends, for Californians, erecycle.org that he works for, with which you can make an appointment (3 days a week) for disposing of your e-waste.

Cellphones for Troops

Dick and Leo talk more about recycling, including batteries, underwear and cellphones.  There is a programme called Cellphones for Soldiers, which helps overseas soldiers call home.
