Wondering what to do with that old monitor?
Don't throw it in the trash. It's now against the law to
discard TVs or computer monitors as trash. Recent regulatory changes require these
items to be recycled through campus surplus (a free service) or disposed of as hazardous
waste (expensive). Contact Steve Goldie in Campus Surplus at (831) 459-2852 to arrange

Staff and faculty mentors sought
