Texas Recycles Day, 2005
by Chad Hauris, Retro Electronics and Audio Lab, Midland, TX. 11/18/05

We are the official recyclers of electronics at Texas Recycles Day in Midland, TX. We are able to restore a lot of the collected items to usefulness so they can again do their part. What cannot be fixed, we are able to salvage many useable parts. This effort promotes recycling, reuse, and historical preservation. Thanks so much again to Keep Midland Beautiful for allowing us to participate in T.R.D.
