Here is a link to a local recycler and what they do with the computers.

We send our obsolete systems there for a new life. In a small way we can
give back to the community through these donations. They will take just
about anything, if it is not useful, it is properly disposed of.

It is free and it helps people in our community.

What?!?

Staples, and FutureShop let you drop off any electronic waste any time,
without charge, for recycling?

I've heard of BatteryPlus and The Source taking rechargeable batteries,
and Baka cell phones, and the hospital for reading glasses, but never
knew Staples / FutureShop took it all.

Without the $10/item charge the dump charges, once, of course, you get
it out there.

There's another local firm, can't remember the name, that will also take
it, for a charge.

Do we know that Staples, FutureShop, etc. actually forwards it to
recycling, not just the dump? And that the dump actually recycles it,
not just safely disposes of it?
