[ale] disposal/recycling of dead computers?



When I last went to the Cobb County dump they only charged $5 for a load up to 400 pounds.   They had a separate place for all electronics including my 27? analog TV.   I had filled up my car with that TV and multiple old computers.   That was about 5 years ago.

On checking just now I see they accept ?monitors? and don?t seem to restrict that to flat panel.   The fee for Cobb country residents for up to 400 pounds is now $7 but for non-county residents is $50.

I don?t recall.  I?d call them.  Do all goodwill accept monitors?  My most recent experience with the Woodstock location was they would not. Is this Dell thing a recent agreement?

How much per pound? The driving distance adds up quickly, which is why I usually point people to goodwill due to their proximity to where most people live...

Marietta recycling will pay you by the pound to recycle dead computers.  I don?t think they?ll take monitors. There # is 770.425.6600. They?re in Marietta.  Close to Kennesaw hospital part of town.

All,
I've accumulated a number of dead laptops and desktops - is there a good place to recycle them, apart from my local county facility?  These are truly DED boxen, not just old ones.
