hello everyone!
« on: May 03, 2013, 04:31:43 AM »

Hello everyone!

I'm Peter, and I'm new to the site.

Registered here to know how many of you guys recycle old appliances? Turn them to something eco-friendly (if that is really possible).

If not, how do you guys get rid of your old/broken appliances?

Thanks and looking forward to great feedback.

Peter Vekselman

Welcome, I am sure you will learn a lot on this forum.
Here in Pa, they pay about $ 130 a truckload for scrap iron, so never a problem getting rid of stuff. For electronic scrap they
require you to take it to a recycling site and they pay nothing for it.

Yeah we have metal freaks all around here. They even came up in my yard and took appliances. I mostly have a few appliances for spares.
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
