    Have you looked at Planet Green for the inks? That's our go-to but they don't handle toner. They also take weird crap like FitBits, calculators, and phones. They payouts have been excellent, given...

    I second the comment about FB Marketplace. Craigslist had turned into a dead-end, full of no-shows and spam. Everyone's Favorite Auction Site had kinda gone sour for me, too, since I was never able...

    You are going to want to store those screen to screen, stacked on their edges like LP's. The way they are shown in the photo is pretty much guaranteed to ruin them.

    Plasmas are probably the riskier board, owing to the higher voltages required for the setup. LED and LCD panels should be less problematic, unless the caps are for the starter (or whatever) on the...

    I'd put an ad on CL, to see if anyone was already bulking it and moving it along. At least, they might pick up for free. I've looked into Scrapo, an online plastic brokerage but haven't made any...

    All of the tubs I have handled were #5, polypropylene. It's a flexible, durable plastic with a high temp tolerance and no real leaching.

    AZ and CA are distinct exceptions but many states have landfill bans in CRT's because they are EPA-regulated. The glass is lead-permeated which is the main reason you can't add it to standard glass...

    I've gotten mixed reports on ivory resale. I last knew that you had to prove the ivory was taken before 1977(?) or else it fell under the Endangered Species Act and was forbidden for resale in the...

    We intake floppies at our facility and send the bulk to a reseller in California. They scrub and refurb undamaged disks for a small but strong demand for them. They cover shipping at Media rates so...

    Exactly. You will probably find milks and soda bottles, which have steady collector markets, but you won't find anything of real, rare quality. But given that they are newer, they may be in better...

    Are there any local bottle digging groups in your area? I joined a FB group, recently, which has hundreds of US collectors and diggers and this is the kind of stuff they dream of finding.

    I'd think with that much scrap fiberglass, you could talk to a recycler about buying it, as long as it is clean. There aren't many people, globally, recovering that material but it does seem to be...
