    Hi All,

    Perhaps a random question. I have an old desktop that I want to get rid off in an environmentally responsible way. On a good day it can run Windows 7, so it is still somewhat usable. Just needs a hdd. Does anyone know where I can donate or drop off the PC so it doesn’t just end up on a landfill? I’ve looked online obviously, but all the websites for NYC are vague and look like they were designed for Netscape 3.1.

    Hi Joost!

    You may be able to find someone who will repurpose it via the resources here:

    Hi Kate et al,

    I checked this site, and the best option here for this seems to be
    http://nyc.gov/html/stuffex/html/home/home.shtml

    This will allow a guided search for specific donations. Thanks again.

    Joost
