    FREE to a good home

    Over the next couple of weeks we will have at least 15 x 15" CRT monitors that require a good home.

    They are in good working order, some are RM most are Belinea, and are in use as I type this.

    I have absolutely no-where to store them as we are replacing them with TFTs.

    If you are interested and able to collect them then PM me. They should be available at the end of July, possibly sooner if we get a chance.

    Some of these second user companies like First Technologies may take them off your hands and give you some credit. It beats paying for them to be disposed. Would depend on your location though I suppose.

    Most charities will not take them either without a decent workstation to go with each one.

    Time to resurrect conversations about a wall of monitors?

    I don't think WEEE has been implemented in the UK yet, so tip em in the skip while you still can! (joke)

    We send ours to recyclers:

    They've been good - arrived on time and helped us load up the van.

    Re: FREE to a good home

    Well a quote last year from a company recommended by our LEA was around £450 for 20 Base units and monitors.

    In the end I paid about £150 for a charity to take 30 away (The name escapes me at the mo - I'll dig out the url tomorrow).

    @ netman - I'll take the whole of the West Mids, u can have Coventry :P

    if they are in working order then why not get in touch with a recyling centre that shipps them off to the developing countries!

    Re: FREE to a good home

    you need to pay for a hazourdous waste lisence from the local recycling place i think ours £22.50

    then you can take as many as you want to them then!

    http://www.recycling.co.uk/it_recycling.html

    weee has come into force earlier on this year (march i think) so your actually only allowed to get rid of 2 tonnes i think! (but don't hold me to that)

    Free, free as the wind. They might charge for seriously crap stuff but you can give them a tinkle first to check.

    We use this lot

    www.technology-house.net/

    They are taking 15 BROKEN monitors and 6 broken desktops for £75

    If you have a system that works, look for a charity to take them - in Dorset this is Dorset Reclaim
