There was an electronics recycling firm back in Eugene where I hail from
that would take all electronics, resell that which was working, and break
down and sort the rest for scrap metal and materials. It was a fairly
profitable enterprise, especially in reclaimed metals and resales. Is there
anything like that around here?
