Redundant Components

Are there any charities that take redundant components?

I know some will take complete computers, but I've got stuff like old memory modules, CD writers, drives and the like and I really don't want to send them to landfill if I can avoid it

Plenty of Charity shops in my area which take such items - Age Concern/Help the Aged/Cat Rescue/The Ark (an animal charity). So maybe you could find something similar in your area?

Thanks TT, I'll give them a try.

I'm afraid my imagination stopped at Oxfam and Barnado's, and I know they don't do electricals.

Local Technical College. If they run PC repair /engineer courses, they may welcome all sorts of stuff.

A fair number of the charity shops steer clear of electricals.


As a final resort, try Freecycle. Far better than a tip, you often get real thanks, and you may also fill up all that space you've just made by getting different junk from someone else!

All the charity shops near me take electricals, even the Salvation Army shop.
