    Hardware Recycling

    Can anyone recommend a good company to take away about 30 old PC's and CRT's?

    Preferably free would be good...or if anybody here wants them for some strange reason. Circa 6 years old....

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Try SCC, they have a free collection untill 24th Dec

    Not sure if it is for existing customers only but it may be worth a look (link below)

    I've used and can highly recommend System 3 Services Ltd (Wisbech Web Design - Computer Repairs - Computer Disposal)

    Try your local Freecycle group. I shifted a load to a charity that provides computer training to disabled kids. They were happy to take whatever we had.

    Yep, i agree. We have had things shifted through Freecycle.org. You may even find yourself something on there!!

    If not, we are offering a FREE collection over the Xmas period!

    Only rang them the once very polite, came all the way from Lancashire to Durham and took everything I had got for them.
    Received certificate 2 days later.
    @CPLTD:

    Are they not the same?

    We have used CCC for ecological disposal of computer equipment

    Contact sales@c-c-c.co.uk
    Are Schoolcare not the school section of c-c-c.co.uk?

    If so isnt it a little bit naughty to recommend your own company?

    Yes exactly right yabbadabba - making themselves look very poor there.

    I can recommend LCWS, just had them come today, after I contacted them only yesterday! They were 30 minutes early as well and we got it all done and dusted no problems. Very happy to recommend them

    We've had LCWS in a few times to remove old stuff, they even took away the CUB monitors... so they will take anything.
