I can't help you dispose of the floppy disks but I think someone should get
out to that site with a video camera and take some stock footage for GRRN's
producer responsibility campaigns. Someone in CA should seize on this to do
a press conference in front of the 11 tractor trailers as a profound (and
tip of the iceberg) example for why we need aggressive producer
responsibility and take-back policies.
