Regional

  • northeastrecycle.com A little recycling place in Syracuse, NY I like to frequent. The owner has invented a machine and process that revolves around a 100% efficient, and completely responsible way of recycling computers. I have toured their shop and would like to see something like this come to Philly. (STAN!)
