This is an excellent idea. We would only need a volunteer with a
pickup truck (or a car with large trunk) to haul the leftovers
to e-cycling at the close of the event.

Regarding 501c3 status: We would probably have to create a separate
organization and promise not to co-mingle the new organization's
books with LUGOD's.
