What to do with old computer equipment

We all have them.

Old PC’s, monitors, keyboards, mice, printers. We upgrade our IT infrastructure periodically but no-one seems to know what to do with the old stuff. Every client I serve has a “graveyard” room or, in some cases, rooms full of used computer gear that they just allow to collect dust.

So what to do?

You have several options.

1) Recycle.  Most townships and municipalities offer hazardous waste disposal days. If you reach out to your locality you can get a schedule of these days and learn where and when to take your gear.

2) Donate. Many churches and youth organizations will take used, usable computer gear as long as it is in working order.

Either way, you’re going to want to wipe your company info from it and be certain you’re not letting these machines go with any proprietary information on them. CARISMA can help.
