Main Question or Discussion Point

Since building my new system, this is just sitting around, and I doubt I'll ever use them again.

Any ideas as far as disposal? The monitor works fine, but there isn't too much on the PC worth salvaging.

Just thow it in the garbage or what?

I don't know where you live. In North America, a lot of larger cities have specific disposal/recycling centres dedicated to electronic devices.

Find a recycling center around you. CRTs contain about 8 lbs of lead, and should not be tossed into landfills.
