  1. This is excellent! I dropped off an old Dell desktop computer and an old Mac G4 laptop — both minus their hard drives– at the end of March. I felt good about doing this. I got there about 1/2 hr before they started, waited in a fast moving line, and was out of there in a jiffy. It did not mean wasting a lovely Saturday. I highly recommend doing this! Pat
