[Noisebridge-discuss] E-waste at work

OK thanks for the reply.  The power bricks sounds useful and we can always use a small amount of keyboard and mice (5-10 of each tops).   We are pretty flush on USB cables at the moment but could take a small batch of 5-10 of those as well.

That is a lot of monitors...hrmmm...what we need is a monitor that has composite video input (yellow plug) which is pretty uncommon.  Would LOVE to have a working one of those for the front door LCD if you come across it.  Otherwise we could only take a couple of those at most (a lot of LCDs in the space now!)  If they are widescreen I know another non-profit that teaches digital music composition to at-risk youth that could use them.  I'll send you an email off - list with my phone number so we can chat more.

I'm not supposed to take photos in the office. Monitors are 19-23", mostly Dell brand, maybe a dozen of them. Yes, I mean AC power supply bricks, at least a few of which are 20V 4.5A. There are also a lot of keyboards and mice and USB cables.

Hey thanks for thinking of helping out NB with these donations!  A picture is really worth a thousand words...could you send one of what you have?  I'm a little weary on some of that stuff but it would be nice to see it first.  What size monitors?  Any Samsung SyncMasters among them?  Also when you say power adapters, do you mean AC power supply bricks?

My work has a pile of "e-waste" laser printers, LCD monitors, laptop docks, power adapters, etc. I've been told I can take whatever I want. Some of the items definitely work (including at least a few brand new docks and power adapters), and many are probably mostly-working. I'd love to bring a cart full of stuff by to pick through with some interested parties, so NB can keep and use the good stuff and we can disassemble the bad stuff for useful parts. Is that a thing that could happen?
