    I need to add my 2c here.
    I have scored myself some pretty decent kit, by being willing to repair items people throw out...
    At the moment I am looking for a decent-ish (1440 x 900) LCD monitor

    Are all the replies prior to 2015 still relevant? I have two PSU's that I'm pretty sure are broken, where can I take them to be safely disposed of in JHB?

    You can drop it at my place, near Diepsloot. If there are premium grade, it might be worth to repair it.

    I have an old koolance water cooling case that I'm turfing. It was in working order but as I upgraded to a new socket, the waterblock no longer fitted.

    It's been in my garage for over a year and now that I've moved I need to get rid of it.

    It's free to anybody who can get it from me in either sandton or north riding. If nobody wants it I'll recycle it at the northgate recycling centre.

    If you want it, please pm me.

    I am looking for old hardware (provided that it still works). x86 CPUs, motherboards, HDDs etc. If you have any of that sort of waste then I am interested.

    Our local PnP have a bin dedicated to batteries, cartridges, light bulbs etc... But it is always over flowing, so basically useless. Won't be surprised if they just go dump it where all the other rubbish goes.

    Yeah. So many people think it is broken, then it just needs new batteries.

    RedVikings are so dumb...
    These are PSU's, they use no batteries.

    And here I was connecting AAA batteries to my PSU. You want to tell me it is not necessary?
