Recycling/donating old or used computer equipment
Folks in the English Department have had luck using NTR (Nonprofit Technology Resources). It is a charity on 15th and Brandywine that accepts donations of old hardware and fixes them up for worthy community causes. If the equipment is small enough, you can even reach the facility by bicycle. This service is free.
