Disposing Old Computers & Peripherals

I've got an old Mac Quadra AV, some old hard drives,
floppy drives etc. I've also got this HuGe old CRT monitor.

Is there a 'green' solution to disposing of this stuff?

Any suggestions?

There should be a hazardous waste disposal program in your area for things like old electronics, tires, chemicals, etc. that aren't supposed to go to the dump. Like around here they have one at UCLA every weekend. You just pull up and dudes with gloves take the stuff out of your trunk and you drive away. Check with your local garbage company.

it is best to do the best you can, of course...

but unfortunately, about 50% of old computers end up in China, being recycled by hand, in very toxic situations...
