How to Recycle Old Computer Parts

Each company I have worked for has had the same problem with inventory, what to do with old electronic equipment when you  no longer need it.  I have been allowed to take home many old computers and parts, but there is usually still a surplus even after the scavengers have picked away at the piles.  So what is an overcrowded tech to do with all the leftovers?

I was recently contacted by an organization that will take just about anything, and try to refurbish it for schools.  Refurbish?  Recycle?  That sounds great, but I was guessing that it would take a lot of work or lots of telephone calls or be a hassle somehow, right?  No!  This company is easy to use, easy to contact, and a pleasure to work with.  We even got a note about a month after our first donation telling us where our old parts had gone and what they were doing now.

If you are in the Chicago area you too can use PCS for Schools.  If not, check out their website for other locations and companies like them in other cities.
