What should I do with my old Mac?

Asked by christybird (813points) January 30th, 2008

So my G3 Powerbook finally died on me and I took out the hard drive. What do I do with the thing now? Does Apple take them back?

From what I understand is if you buy a new computer from Apple they will recycle the computer for you. More information

Yes, you can recycle it through mac, some other places recycle electronics as well. Conversely, you can wipe the hard drive and donate it to a school or a non-profit. I’d bet almost any community group in your area would be happy to have it.

You should ship to me, where I will get it working again and then pass it off to a kid that needs a decent machine to work with!

You might be able to get some money out of it at Second Rotation. They recycle electronics and gadgets. Their website is here:
