Proper disposal of old computers

We've had an old computer sitting on a shelf in the garage for a long time. To give you an idea of how old, it was an IBM PC (remember when people actually had IBM brand computers?) which ran a high-tech operating system called Windows 98. (who knows when that came out...?) At some point over the years technology moved far enough ahead of this computer, whose speed & memory (measured in Mega, not Giga) just couldn't keep up.

Well, it turns out that your neighborhood Staples store has a computer disposal program for just this case. Well, for any computer, really. They will see to it that your old computer is recycled as much as possible, and that any non-recyclable parts are disposed of in the most environmentally friendly manner. They charge $10 per major component (computer, monitor, printer) for the service, and all peripherals (mouse, keyboard, speakers, wires) are free.


Way to go, Staples!
