I've never actually thrown any computers or components out. Parts either get handed down to friends and family, and computers are either handed down or converted into servers and put to work. I tell everybody I've ever met to never throw out a computer, just give it to me.

You might want to check your city's recycling policy. Where I live now, we can recycle computers, but it costs us $5 a computer. In my parents hometown, recycling computers is free. I did have some really, really old computer cases (leftover from when I scrapped it for parts) that I took to their recycling center.
