What can I do with my old computer?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

Charitable organizations may accept computer equipment in good working order for schools and other causes. Because computers become obsolete extremely quickly, organizations are generally only interested in equipment that is less than three years old. An individual or family in your community might be interested in your working computer. List your equipment on the Surrey Reuses website or contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline for reuse options in your area.

Non-working or obsolete computers can be taken to a Return-It electronics recycling depot. To locate the nearest drop off depot, call the RCBC Recycling Hotline or visit the RCBC Recyclepedia or Return-It website.
