I may be toying with a lot of New Years resolutions with this, but if you live in the NYC area you can take all of your old, electronic garbage down to Union Square on Sunday from 8 AM to 4 PM to have it recycled the proper way. I know one of my resolutions this year was to get organized, and this would be the best way to start. Sure you may cherish that old 15-inch CRT monitor that weighs 60 pounds, but honestly, it isn't worth a dime and just tossing it in the garbage isn't good for the environment.
