Excess/unusable monitors

By fhousley ·
I have several excess/unusable serial port monitors that I cannot use, nor find anyone interested in purchasing them. I have looked at several companies on the Internet that will take them, but it costs more money to ship them there than they are worth. What other options are there besides throwing them in the trash?

Since you can't find anyone to purchase your monitors, you might think about donating for a tax write off later. Take them to a charitable organization, such as the goodwill, and they will provide you with a receipt that you can use for tax time. (Many organizations let you fill in the donation dollar value)

If you are not interested in the tax write-off, you could always donate them to a local school district.

Monitors are OLD. I can't find anyone interested in them for any reason. Not even as a science project to take apart and play with. Schools in this area have the latest/greatest in hardware and these are unacceptable to them in any instance.

Not much else can be done,if you cannot donate the monitors because they are old and disposing of them in a safe manner may require that you pay a fee to dump them at a disposal site
Try setting them on the curb with a sign to take for free.

Not an option - have already contacted the City concerning ordinances governing such and is not acceptable.

Your best bet to properly get rid of the monitors is to find a local firm that does computer / electronics recycling. You are apt to have to pay a nominal fee for the service. But you can rest assured that you have disposed of them in an envioronmentally friendly manner.

Where I live, GoodWill serves as a drop-off point for old hardware.

The people who write the checks at this place will not pay to have unusable equipment hauled off.
