    Hello. I have a crashed Dell CPU and a HP laser printer with a damaged memory. What is the proper way to dispose of these? I'd like to do something that is environmentally sound. Is there a use/market for the parts?

    Thanks.

    Depending on how remote you are there should be an outlet that will take these items. There are new directives coming into force in the UK (WEEE Directive) that puts a restriction on the disposal of unwanted (primarily commercial) electrical goods. As a result small companies are cropping up who specialise in unwanted electrical goods, particularly computers.

    Some charities have learned how to cannabalise computer parts and turn them into servicable systems, there may be one near you. Alternatively, contact your local authority who should give you advice of where to dispose of your parts in an environmentally friendly manner.

    Good luck !

    You could also mail them to me ;)

    If you wanted, you could try selling them on eBay, you never know who might need the parts.
