When I cleaned out my junk closet, I found a ton of wires; every shape, length, and USB port size and twisted into a jumbled heap.
Apparently, I own some things made by Panasonic and Sony. I found the charger for the Olympus camera I broke in 2003, which I am sure has a dead battery by now and unearthed an expensive video camera that was used three times.
I have a difficult enough time trying to figure out what to do with all the wires when I have the manual sitting on the desk, so five years later, I am at a total loss. I donated some things to my sons school and will try to recycle the rest.

We have gotten into the habit of throwing away old electronics, which are obsolete far too quickly. Disposing of e-waste in landfills can cause severe human and environmental health impacts. Greenpeace wrote and article exposing the e-waste trail.
I also found a recycling center that specializes in this field. Elot.com
