Computer part recycling

Postby TAsunder » Wed Aug 15, 2007 11:54 am

Per this article, the digital outpost is recycling computer parts this week. I called them to verify this and they said that it ended in may. What the? Who do I need to contact to find out about this? I called the number of the website from the article.

You probably spoke to someone at the main shop. The outpost's direct line is 255-2647, and yes, they confirm that they are accepting computer equipment through this weekend.

Would they wipe the hard drive?

Got an email back from the manager, who apologized for the guy who was wrong. He told me they shred hard drives for security.

A few hits with a hammer will render your hard drive quite "secure."
