    On the Monday morning following the ESaturday-Rose Bowl drop, I found two giant TVs dumped on my front sidewalk. Ugh.

    Sometimes I think we should add a red trashcan for electronics/hazardous. We have so many things that should go in there. I regularly see flourescent light tubes, keyboards, etc. hanging out of regular trash cans.

    Red can!
