The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

What should I do with a set of cordless phones?

I have a four-handset group of Panasonic KX-TG5634 cordless phones. The base unit and all the charging stands are present. The handset screen from which one knows what's happening is blank on most of the handsets.

You can receive calls on these phones; you can make a call if you can count beeps and trust your ability to punch out a number with no confirmation on the screen.

I'm just trying to avoid making landfill out of this set while someone might be able to use them. Is there a better way to discard them than the city landfill?

They're yours if you want them. I can deliver locally (Rapid City, Hermosa) or mail them anywhere for the price of the shipping.

Sounds like a good candidate for "Freecycling." You might try either the Pennington or Custer county groups.

I believe they are all hosted by Yahoo Groups but I think you can subscribe and post without needing a Yahoo account.

Thanks, Ben. I had to join the groups to communicate, but that's all right.
