    recycling computer scrap.

    Hello all,

    I have a about 100-150 lbs of computer scrap (motherboards, RAM, CPUs, other circuit boards, cell phones, etc). I used to send my computer scrap to Relectrocycle in Florida but they have closed. Does anyone here recycle this stuff? If so where do you sell it?


    Thanks,

    Bill

    Several years ago here there were at least a couple threads about computer scrap. And then there were also several threads about stripping the gold with chemicals - that sounded a wee bit beyond what I'd want to be doing = caustic, fumes, and nasty, nasty situations.

    I quit looking, but still have a whole lot of scrap circuit boards. Money in the bank someday maybe....

    Ive seen the above video and others like it. There's nothing like spending a couple hundred dollars on chemicals to leach out less than $100 in gold and then you're left with a couple hundred dollars of nasty chemicals to deal with.

    Scrapping also led me to copper = right now setting at $2.90 a lb?

    I think that this may fall under the heading of hobby. I did my own B/W film and photo developing. The cost was more than sending the film out to Foro-Mart, but I had more control of the Pix that I made.
    And it was fun.

    But this is out of my league.
