REcycling nightmare

How will northeast Ohio contend with the massive disposal of analog TVs in 2008-2009?

From Waste News:

Many TVs will be tossed when new FCC rules take effect in 2009

Is there an opportunity here?

I would like to see someone in northeast Ohio take this inevitable transition and make it a "plus" for Cleveland.
I see the end of DVDs as we know it, too.  Download stations at local libraries?

Good karma

  I recently joined's a bit convoluted at first, but well worth the effort--

The ClevelandOhio_West_Freecycle™ group is open to all who want to "recycle" that special something rather than throw it away. Whether it's a chair, a fax machine, piano or an old door, feel free to post it. Or maybe you're looking to acquire something yourself! Nonprofit groups are also welcome to participate too!

One main rule: everything posted must be free. This group is part of The Freecycle Network, a nonprofit organization and a movement of people interested in keeping good stuff out of landfills. Check out for other cities and info on the movement!
