If you are visiting this website, the computer you use works! Congratulations!

If the computer is reparable or still works, take a look at our Computer Repair and Computer and Monitor Reuse pages to either keep it working or get it to someone in need.

What if it really is broken?

Ok, so maybe you have a broken one in the closet or garage or back of your car. If that's the case, you're in the right place.

Locations on this page accept desktop computers and their peripherals. Peripherals is a big word for your mouse, keyboard, external drives and other stuff you have plugged into your computer in order to use it. Just remember to dispose of the batteries properly. Check out our Office Equipment page for information on how to dispose of your printers and scanners.

Is it free to dispose of my computer?

Most locations are free, but some do charge. Check the listing and call ahead to make sure. The County Transfer Stations accept computers and peripherals for free. They are marked with a star (*) in the Where To Go list below.

What about my monitor or laptop?

Many locations that accept computers also accept monitors and laptops. Check the location, and the TVs and Computer Monitors page or the Laptop Computers page to be sure!
