CRTs retrieved from pond near Ottawa River

Here is a picture of 2 CRTs removed, by two concerned citizens, from a pond on Front Road in Chute-à-Blondeau. These were dumped there by someone who did not want to take the time and trouble to bring these two computer terminals to Recycle Action in Hawkesbury for proper disposal. If these terminals had been left in the water over the winter the screens would have cracked and leached toxins into the water, infecting the fish that may ultimately be caught by those who fish in these waters.
