Or how to dispose of your unwanted electronics Now that your family has opened the new computers, I- phones, DVD players and televisions, what are you going to do with the old stuff?.

Donation-organizations might not accept ( or might charge a fee for), older, less useful equipment (e.g., 386 processors, dot matrix printers, less than 14 inch color monitors).
