So Much E-Waste
from the e-wasted dept
The numbers that start showing up in reports like this are mind-boggling. No one seems to know what to do about all the leftover and obsolete computers that everyone has been collecting. They have harmful things in them, so they can’t just be dumped. Recycling them is expensive, and people don’t want to take on the cost. How long until we start blasting our leftover computers into space?

What to do with old computers
One possibility which is described today in the Financial Times, is to try and recycle the circuit boards:
depends on how old we're talking about
I basically take em in, I mean if its a 486 or better (so far I have a couple of 486s and 3 pentiums…on top of my Athlon and laptop) and I tinker. I have a few of them networked and all doing something different. Its fun and a way to learn.
I also have my old xt with 640K that’s still in operation…not much I can do with it (I still haven’t figured out how I can network the thing hehe) but I have all my old games and stuff and its a lot of fun to play around with.
For my school
I am a student who needs way more info for my school project on E-waste, so, plz give more info.
