Where to dispose old laptops/gadgets
« on: August 01, 2016, 07:49:46 PM »
I have an old laptop that I've been meaning to dispose, but didn't know how. It's no longer working. I'm not sure if the parts are still okay. What is the proper way to dispose retired gadgets? Do I just throw it away in the trash bin? Do I bring it somewhere for proper disposal (because of environmental concerns)? I hope someone could enlighten me.

SM still does. Just check your nearest SM if they are part of their recycling program. Schedule is 8am-2pm every first Friday and Saturday of the month.

i think i saw some posts on tpc that buys those stuff.  they buy it for 100 pesos only though.  but still, you get paid for something you want to throw away

I was able to sell some e-waste (broken mobos, vga card, printer, etc) perhaps a decade ago through tpc. Last I checked though nobody buys e-waste in tpc anymore. Worth taking a look though.

You could try posting it for sale (as for disposal or spare parts) in tipidpc.com.
