Computer and home theater components are made of different materials and require diverse disposal efforts. Some trash hauling companies will not take those components. These components can be recycled through a variety of drop-off locations and take-back programs. A good place to start is by checking with your computer’s manufacturer, or the retailer you purchased it from to see what kind of take-back or trade-in options might be available.
