Offer: Household chemical products (W Atown near Muhlenberg Campus) Gifted - I have a collection of “household hazardous waste” type items. A list is below.

If interested, I will set everything out and you can pick the items you have use for and leave the rest.

Offer: Old Apple hardware and more (West Allentown near Muhlenberg College) Gifted - Below is a brief list of everything with additional details afterward. iMac G5 (not working, no hard drive) AirPort Extreme Base Station (first gen model) 3.5” USB floppy drive reader HP Photosmart C4280 printer/scanner Epson Stylus C88+ printer The iMac was throwing a three beep error on startup. It looked to me like the cable between the hard drive and the ram was loose on the ram side, but I had no luck getting the computer to start up normally. I removed the hard drive because it contains personal data. I have retained the mounting screws and labeled them. Also included is the power cord, manuals, and cds for installing the OS. Please note that this computer is too old to be of use for normal computing needs. The AirPort and floppy drive appear to work properly. I do not recommend using the AirPort as a regular WiFi router, it is too old and lacks modern security protocols. I have verified that both printers turn on and make the usual ink jet printer startup noises. I can not verify that they will print properly. Both were sitting unused for about 4 years. Included are the power and USB cables for both printers. For the Epson I also have the instruction manual and a couple unopened ink cartridges (yellow and magenta). This will be a porch pickup. Feel free to contact me if any questions. Thank you.
