I am preparing to add another old machine to the pile of machines that I have accumulated over the years. I remove parts that I can use on the other machines in my house and what is left goes into the storage room. Well with this next old machine going into the storage room, I counted 6 machines.Each still has it's own MB.

Where can I safely dispose of the MB so I can recycle the boxes? I live in a very small town and I asked about this at our local computer shop and they don't want the mother boards, but they will take the boxes. I've never thought about where to get rid of the MBs before.

How and/or where can I do that?
