City throws out computers & CRT monitors

10/15/2010:

Environmentally un-friendly

One Hoboken411 reader spotted this no-no outside Hoboken city hall this afternoon. The city tossing out computers and CRT monitors like regular garbage – when they need to go through a safe recycling process. Many states ban these items from landfills.

Some “green” city we live in!

Irish is right, and I’m surprised at you, 411!
You should have hauled those babies home, and done a little sleuthing. Or better yet, just say you did and see who panics. There’s a better than even chance that they just erased the drive, not realizing that a standard erase only removes the directory information, not the data.

Does this really surprise you? Have you seen the clowns that work there? Just look at the ring masters running the circus. Same old. Same old!

More importantly check out the size of the invoices on the new office furniture!! Upscale furnishing even a consulting firm would be ashamed to sport.
