Where Do Old Computers Go?

    It seems as though every couple of years a new operating system emerges from Microsoft offering bigger and better features. More than likely these features exceed the standards of older computers creating the necessity either to upgrade your old clunker or buy something new. Eventually, the system will be outdated. So, where do these old computers go?

      I finally retired my Windows 98 computer to the closet. It still works fine but due to space issues in my home office; it has been relegated to the closet. I have a lot of great games on that machine and just hate to discard it. I am typing this response on my Windows XP computer which will also eventually find a home in the closet. I've got some great games on this one also.

    You can give them to Best Buy or our county has a recycling day that you can take any electronics I think companies recycle some of the parts.

    Those programs also aim to keep toxins like heavy metals out of landfills so they can be disposed of safely.
