Secure computer recycling


#1

As some of us wait eagerly for our new eve V to arrive we look at our old laptops, tablets etc and consider how to get rid of them. Anyone with experience or recommendations? , I believe some government councils in the UK offer this service but not in my location.

If the computer is still in working condition, you could always see if a friend or somebody would have a use for it, or perhaps you could find an interesting use for it yourself. I don’t see much sense in trying to find a computer recycling center if the device is still functioning properly and still relatively new (ie didn’t come with Windows XP).

Unfortunately these are not well represented in the UK

In addition to what @Jamil_Stafford mentioned, if it’s still in working condition you can probably get something for it on a site like gazelle that buys electronics. Or there’s always craigslist
