Anybody got any good advice on what to do with a load of old tech I don't need? It's mostly routers that I have no use for anymore. It seems that, unlike the States, we don't have any companies dedicated to recycling old equipment and I'm struggling find any charities that would take it.|
Ta very much.
Recycling old tech

what about Freecycle? Can get rid of any old junk on there. Or Free ads paper.
or strip out all the capacitors/resistors etc and make a radio or something. Or a sexbot!!
Man, I'm an ideas factory!

We do, it's just that they charge for collection and recycling rather than just accepting donations.
There's a handful of free ones here though - http://www.itforcharities.co.uk/pcs.htm
Thanks for the help, guys. I'm not bothered about selling any of it but it just seems a waste to junk it. I'm going to go with the sexbot though.
At least they'll recycle them for you for free.
At the top of the recycling chain is reuse. It really is the way forward and ensures that mobile phones get a new lease of life by using as little energy as possible. We reuse almost all handsets somewhere in the world, often in developing economies where access to mobile phones makes a real difference to people’s lives.
