Back in 2007 I recommended an organization called Freecycle for divesting yourself of not just computers, but all sorts of stuff you want to get rid of. Freecycle is still around, and I dare say is even bigger now than back then. I did a quick Google search on “how to dispose of old computers” and found some additional places worth a look-see. Companies like PC Liquidations and eRecure are certified disposal specialists, and have collection points nationwide. Big box retailer Best Buy also has a free in-store recycling program for everything from cell phones to computers to appliances. If you have a Best Buy near you (and I happen to know that you do, Beverly!) check them out.
