Recycling Computer Hardware

I think I missed the boat on Blog Action Day. However, it does not mean that I can't still bring attention to something from that event. Lifehacker had a post about donating old computer hardware. You clear up some storage space, save electronics from the scrap heap and help out people and organizations that could use the hardware.

I know some jurisdictions have introduced electronic recycling levies and things but I haven't heard about whether those programs are effective or having any impact. Looks like individuals will have to take responsibility for their own electronics.

I haven't heard much on recycling hardware either,but I would think it would better to keep the computers and other hardware out of the dumps. I say we use recycle-it hardware companies to properly dispose or reuse our old hardware.
