Many such places will charge a special disposal fee for monitors. (Thus
my point.) Some don't.
(Starting Nov. 1, Californians will also pay a statutory surcharge of $6-10
on initial retail purchase of any computer or television video device
having a video screen -- toxic contents or not -- to help fund safe disposal
of _old_ monitors. Run your computer headless, and save money! ;->
