Disposal Of Old Equipment

Recommended Posts

I have inherited a small collection of old equipment, base units, monitors, printers, odd cards and general IT bric-a-brac which I would like to dispose of responsibly. Anyone know a good place to do that?

I might be interested in some, depending what you have :)

I doubt aspire would take any, as they refurb and sell-on, so wont take anything too old / that they can't sell generally, but worth a shot! :)

That's not totally true.

While they do refurb and sell systems on, they also strip and recycle loads of electronic stuff plus if any of the monitors are CRT they'd be very interested.

Just been looking on their website by following the link in this thread, and found this:

 

"

Unfortunately there are some items we cannot accept due to their specialist decommissioning requirements and these are:

    • ..
    • CRT Monitors or TVs",    "

Others are mentioned, but I cut them out.

 

An interesting website and organizaton.  I looked at it as I've an old CRT to get rid of, but it looks to be headed for the tip now.  I'll read further to see if very old tower units may be of interest (I've taken the HDD's out though to convert them to external HDD's though when I find the time).

Give them a buzz before taking it to the tip, when I saw Dave a few months ago who runs the place he was asking if I had any CRT monitors as he couldn't get enough as people were after them for old gaming machines and I did drop some off.
