Old DSL Stuff for Charity?


[link to this post]
 
Does anybody know of a charitable organisation to which I can send (Freepost) old/unwanted DSL equipment? This is all I can find but Id rather somebody else benefit that receive a Pressie voucher or accumulate posts, etc:

It would not be so bad if the voucher was for a reasonable company rather than "tat"!


For PCs &c I use: http://computers4africa.org.uk/index.php/donors.html but DSL is probably too advanced however an email to them could be useful.

If the items are sellable some Charity shops will take them - Oxfam has about 5 which do .

My local ones don't. Last year Oxfam was offered 2 routers and an X-Box (plus games). They took the games laugh It's hard to find a chaity that will accept anything electrical.

One of our local places does, I believe they have a friendly PAT tester.

Too late frown

If you let me know where the shop is I'll see if I can get any future stuff out there.

I have a load of stuff I don't use, and not worth putting on ebay, but don't waste to just scrap it. So will sort out sending off stuff
