Over the years I’ve accumulated a lot of computer and electronics junk. I’ve got a couple of near-dead laptops, an old cell phone, a Palm PDA, couple of printers, and a scattering of barely recognizeable parts. But what to do with them?
Computation is a Toronto-based computer recycler with satelite operations in Quebec. They’re holding a special event this week (April 16-22) to coincide with Earth Day. They’re inviting people who are looking for an “environmentally sensitive and privacy ensured method to dispose of [their] unwanted computer equipment” to drop it off at their facilities in Toronto and Montreal.
The address in Toronto is 2444 Bloor St. West, and in Montreal it’s 7080 rue Alexandra, (near the corner of Jean-Talon and St. Laurent).
If you have junk to get rid of, this is your chance. They take your stuff for free, and either re-use the components or dispose of them in a certified environmentally manner. They also have privacy assurace, which I take to mean they completely wipe any hard drives before disposal or re-use.
