- Several major manufacturers of computers and electronics are offering consumers recycling and reuse alternatives for their products. This is most common for old PCs and computer peripherals (monitors, keyboards, mice, etc.). Many of these branded-product programs are free for consumer products, but be sure you "read the fine print" and confirm that your equipment is accepted. Often the cost of shipping a product or driving a long distance for "free recycling" is more expensive than recycling it locally.
