Note the fine print though. I didn't see any way to easily and cheaply
donate 1 or 2 Pentium3 700mhz systems as it all seems targetted at
businesses overhauling their office environment.
* Minimum pickup quantity is 20 systems (or 40 items).
* Items meeting WorkVentures minimum specification of Pentium 4 will
be collected, expertly decommissioned and then either refurbished or
recycled for free.
* Items not meeting our minimum specification (below Pentium 4) will
be charged on a cost recovery basis; although we are able to absorb
reasonable costs dependent upon the quality of the overall donation
and the percentage of sub Pentium 4 units collected
* Where charges are required, we charge this work on an hourly rate
basis covering vehicle and labour – this invariably works out
significantly lower than commercial operators who typically charge on
a per unit basis. [citation required]
Does anybody know what other dealers around town charge (or even pay)
