Five Tips for Large TV Removal

Big TV removal in Milwaukee. “Big” meaning old school, Sony picture tube type. The 50″ television on wheels that weighs about 150lbs and has a width of nearly 28″.

How does one remove a bulky, heavy and dusty TV from their home?

1. First step is to find the exit with the least obstacles. An obstacle is anything blocking the movement of the television or person hauling it. Make sure baby kitten is put in another room.

2. Measure the television’s height, width and depth.

3. Next measure the doorways as is. Then measure the doorways without obstructions (screen doors and hardware, wooden doors, etc).

4. Once you’ve determined the path out, measured accordingly, and removed obstructions then you can either start rolling the television out or begin dismantling the doors and hardware (if necessary).

5. When moving the TV, take it slow, down one step at a time. Be sure to descend gently down the stairs to avoid breaking caster wheels.

Good luck.

BvCurbside's Collection and Recycling Process

The electronics recycling process starts with the consumer.  She elects who will be recovering her end-of-life devices and ultimately determines whether they will be properly recycled or not.
BvCurbside is responsible for the collection and transport of unwanted and obsolete electronic devices.  We obtain material from residents, schools and small business and transport it to our holding facility at 2555 South Lenox Street in Milwaukee.
When Material arrives at our warehouse it is weighed and logged by address.  Once a certain volume of material is reached we place a call to a registered recycler and request a pick-up. The recycler then obtains the recovered material from BvCurbside  and hauls it to their facility for processing.  
BvCurbside’s registered recycler uses a 3-tier recycling process for all used computer and electronic equipment received.  Equipment brought to the facility is weighed, inventoried and sent through the following phases:
1st Phase – Reuse:
The first phase of the electronics recycling process is to visually inspect each unit.  At this time it is determined whether units will be recycled, re-used or refurbished. Reused equipment containing data will then be erased in accordance with Department of Defense standards.  After data is sanitized the units will be refurbished, tested and sold to reuse markets.
 2nd Phase – Recover:
The electronic units that do not pass visual inspection will be sent through processing.  Here, the units will then be deconstructed and separated into metals, plastics, and glass.  They are harvested and sent for reuse.
3rd Phase – Recycle:
After deconstructing electronic units, the residual components and materials  will be processed and sent back through the recycling stream and the material will be used for making new products.

Justice Breyer

Corruption does not include efforts to “garner ‘influence over or access to’ elected officials”.

We all have a right to speak freely about our political views. If in the Wisconsin Governers’ race I favor Tony Zielinski over Scott Walker, I would vote for Tony Zielinski. And before voting I woould probably share my opinions with my friends or family. If I have in sum, 40 friends and family members, I may directly influence them to the extent that I was able, not only to speak, but to persuade, convince, or cajole.

For candidate Zielinski direction of or may not speak would go as far as my friends and family and exercise my speech rightopinion to my friends and colleagues.
