Disposing of Computers & Accessories

computerComputers can be properly disposed of using two methods: reuse or recycling. If your device is in working order, the best choice is to reuse it by donating or selling it to a person or organization. Before you donate an electronic device, wipe out your personal information to prevent identity theft.
