    First off, you want to make sure to destroy your data gets destroyed. A fun way to do this is simply take your favorite hammer and release some stored up stress on your hard drive smile  . Then you can recycle it with a trustworthy company like, "Best Buy." Hope this helps!

      Seriously, I do have a Best Buy near me and had no idea that they have a recycle program.  Thanks!

    Try to find a computer-techy person who wants it to remake it or use for parts.  Try free on craigslist, freecycle, or computer stores in your area.

    Have you considered recycling the Old computer to put it into more use. I often use my Old computers to make a Home Sever or a Network Firewall. May be this are some useful ways you can consider before disposing the computer.

      Thank you.  I have no idea how to make other equipment out of my old equipment but I am going to check with my nephew who may be interested.

    TV emissions have raised bio disposal concerns.  Recycling centers  like Goodwill and the Cristina Foundation specialize in providing a final resting place or a new home to old but useful electronics. read more
