More and Cheaper Ways to Recycle Computers

I gathered this information a few months back so they could've made a few changes since then, but I wanted to pass it on to you. Many people don't like dumping large items like computers into landfills ...especially when you consider the toxic effects it's going to leave for our children and grandchildren to deal with.

Recycling this equipment is a wise decision. First of all call around to see if a local repair place may want to buy what you have for parts. We've recycled a couple computers that way. If you can't find a local dealer who will be happy to have components, then maybe one of these recyclers will be of interest to you.

If you're local, you could recycle for free at some of these places.
