Be green with your old computer equipment (hard drives, monitors, printers, etc.) when you are getting new ones. There are several options:
- Can you keep your computer a year longer than the average 3 year rotation?
- Try donating it (and writing it off on taxes!). Many schools, non-profits, and charities will take computers refurbished by these recycling/refurbishing companies. Find ideas and lists here:
- Buy only from a computer company who will take back your old computer (such as Dell and Sony for FREE!). The Computer Take Back Campaign has a great PDF document that lists these details for you.
