recycling how do/getting rid of junk/electronics recycling
- Evan, Not a lot of money in it. Minimally $2, to $4(at most) each.
However, since we all(?) open up the computers we're given to see
what's inside, half the work is done. It only takes 1-2 minutes to
liberate the motherboard, cables, CPU and cards. When you aren't being
careful about it, amazing how fast it can be accomplished. I pile all
the HDDs into a box and take them all apart at once when I want to
watch TV or a movie.
I'm still collecting CPUs (have any 487s to share?)(still looking for
certain 286 and 386 chips), VGA cards, some sound cards, so I HAVE TO
open up the box to see the innards.
If you have a kid, and a garage/basement full of junker computers
(nothing classic!), an afternoon's worth of work (sitting down, no
less!) could yield the kid $50-100+ or more... Bill KA3AIS

So how much money can you typically get for an equally typical
minitower? I ask only because it sounds like a lot of work for a little
money... of course this whole discussion is (arguably) off-topic... since
we'd never recycle anything worth collecting! :)
