Pass them on
Donating your unwanted computer equipment to a charity is a great way to help others. For some charities it is important that the equipment is in good working order; however other groups, such as WEEECharity, have technicians who can repair them.
- Check for any instruction manuals, cables or accessories that you could donate with it.
- If you are also providing software with your computer, make sure you include the software licence and any installation CDs.
- Please ensure that your personal data is removed from your computer before you pass it on or recycle it.
