So as an electronics geek for many years (and a bit of a pack rat as well)
I've accumulated an absurd amount of electronics that now have either no
use (but are still operable) or are broken or at least have been rendered
useless to some degree.
Video Cards from 1996
CD ROM drives
Broken guitar cords
The list goes on. So while I could probably piece some of it out and get
some money for a few of the items, for the most part it amounts to mostly
worthless detritus taking up space in my home, and in general adding to
clutter and needlessly complicating things in general. The question then
is, do i just box it up and take it to some recycling facility? Will
someone pay by the pound for this stuff? Given how much money has gone in
to this collection of e-rubble I'm loathe to just give it the heave-ho, but
I'm not sure what other options I have.
I figured I can't be the only old man on these boards with a pile of wires,
motherboards, and radio parts filling every nook and cranny in my home, so
what the heck are the rest of you doing?
