Some manufacturers such as Dell also offer to take back any old equipment when you need to dispose of it:-

 

Dell - Recycle Now

 

In some circumstances I may also offer to take away any old computer equipment for you, this is then repaired/refurbished and given away to local charities and good causes

 

IMPORTANT:

 

Make sure your hard disk has been removed and destroyed or securely wiped before disposing of your PC - failure to do this could mean someone else could get access to your files, passwords and other sensitive information

 

The images below show the usual location of a hard disk in both a desktop and a laptop computer
