Got a new computer and not sure what to do with the old one? Might I make a suggestion?! Gary Cahn runs RecycleMyComputer which is located in downtown Bethesda right near Bethesda Metro and Safeway. He recycles discarded & unwanted computers (even broken ones), refurbishes them, and donates them to people in need. He's able to do so with a generous grant from OASIS.

RecycleMyComputer will accept Pentium 3 computers 800 mhtz or better. There is generally a sticker on the front of the computer. If the sticker says Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Pentium 3, or Pentium 4, they can be refurbished. Computers that don't have one of these stickers on them should be recycled at the County Landfill. The computer does not have to be in working condition, because they are able to repair them. They also accept monitors, printers, keyboards, mice, etc. All of these must be in working condition.

Due to budget constraints, they can't do pick ups. You need to bring them to their office located at 4805 Edgemoor Lane (within steps of Betesda Metro and ample public parking)

If you wish to apply to receive a refurbished computer or know someone who needs a refurbished computer, call OASIS at 301-469-6800 Press 1, X211 to request an application. Seniors receive preference for these computers. There is a $10 administrative fee charged to receive a donated computer. Recipients will have to pick up their computer at the Edgemoor Lane office.

What a great program! With all of the library closings and restricted hours, this could be a real life line for those without. Spread the word. And please consider donating your old computer to RecycleMyComputer.

Marcie, do they take old Macs?  They never seem to die.
