    I had both my VCR's blow up this weekend and I also replaced an old Sony DVD player that had begun to develop overheating problems. Is there any thing I should do for disposal beyond just throwing them in the trash?

    I heard Office Depot has a "dead electronics" dropoff point at their stores (but I could be wrong, I'd call the nearest store before loading up the car).

    You put it on your curb and watch it magically disappear. Always works around here, with any sort of electronics/appliances (the heavy stuff like TVs usually get stripped).

    I saw a bit on TV this week about gold mineing. It's cheaper to get gold out of printed circuit-boards than out of the ground these days.
