What to do with your Old Desktops and Laptops

by Jeremiah on July 15, 2013

The thought of throwing away an old computer after we’ve spent a significant amount of money on it once upon a time, often leads us to simply leave it in its designated spot, dormant and gathering dust.

If your old technology is cluttering up your room or office, there are better ways of disposing your old computers or computer parts than simply leaving them to gather dust under a bed, in a closet or on a desk.

If you’ve made the decision that you will never need the computer or any of its parts in the near future then it’s time to make the decision on how and where to get rid of them.

Sell, sell, sell
There are numerous ways to sell your computers or parts. Some of the better places include garage sales, local second hand markets or websites such as ebay, gumtree and quicksales online classifieds. Even if your computer won’t turn on, there are many individuals out there who specialise in buying ‘dead’ computers and fixing them up for resell to make a profit.

Bin it!
If you want to dispose of these items quickly and without any hassle, the easiest way to do this is to simply chuck it in the bin.

Recycling
This is definitely the most environmentally-friendly way to dispose of your old computers if you no longer need them. According to the Environment Protection and Heritage Council in Australia, only 10% of computers which are thrown away are recycled; the rest end up in landfill. These computers which end up in landfill contain hazardous toxins which then seep into the ground. So you want to do the right thing but are unsure of how to recycle your computer? There are many companies such as ewaste who will collect your old computers and deliver them to a recycling facility.

Make a donation
This is a great way to get rid of your old laptops or desktops and help out an organisation in need at the same time! Some places which often need this kind of equipment are schools, not-for-profit organisations, charities, opp shops and local libraries. You will more than likely have to drop it off at their location, but the upsides are that you may be able to claim your donation as a tax deductible, plus you’ll get that warm fuzzy feeling of helping out someone in need.
