    I am already a member of Freecycle and will consider this - I have found homes for about 60 old computers (no sensitive data - hard drives reformatted) using it.
    I just thought someone might have a good idea or two.

    Another vote for freecycle. and we get all the VHS players we need by putting in a Wanted ad.

    I can ask the Bursar if it'd be possible for us to come and pick them up in the minibus at some point.

    We plan to sell ours off to teachers at some point at around £25 a pop. Most have some life left in them - maybe 50 to 100 hours, which will give some good dvd watching time (which is what I use one of them for at the mo!)

    Might get them to sign a sheet agreeing to weee them when they die though, from above comments.
