I love recyclying. Can an old computer be recycled or donated?

Recycle or Donate an Old Computer

After you have purchased a new computer, instead of tossing your old computer into the trash, donate it to a worthy cause. There are many recycling projects available that will take your used computer and donate it to someone who is unable to afford to buy a new computer.

People who have benefited from receiving recycled computers include those with disabilities and single parents or low-income families. Not only does donating your old computer help reduce the amount of items ending up in the landfill, it gives another person the chance to experience the joy of owning a computer. Also most computer recycling programs will provide a tax receipt for your generous donation.
