Removal of personal data from laptop

I've removed the hard drive from my old laptop. Will that mean that if I take it to an approved waste disposal site (without the hard drive) that no-one will be able to access any personal information?

Correct. No hard drive, no data.
Can you not send the laptop to a charity for recycling?

thats correct no one will acces your perosnal files and data, however if you choose to reuse the old hd then make sure its compatible with machine.
