Anyone know a good place to dispose of unwanted technology? I'm trying Southwark SwapExchange.

Canon i965 USB colour inkjet + spare ink cartridges (no longer prints photos, fine for B&W and colour documents)
Toshiba VHS video recorder + remote control

Both are fairly modern but no longer required. It seems a shame and environmentally unfriendly to bid them. Free to a good home to anyone who wants to collect.

Try freecycle too - there's a lambeth one (google freecycle for full address)

Or take them to the British Heart Foundation shop on the Old Kent Road.

Chartiy shops are unfortunately not allowed to take electrical goods

Hi Tattie

That is generally true, but some will take small electrical goods. Best thing is to ring and ask them before going there.

Here is a full list of charity shops in London.

Freecycle also now has a Southwark group (though it's fairly new).

However, for offers of goods the wider London Freecycle group is perhaps better (it's massive, and there haven't been many of my old things for which it's failed to find a home).

So how does the BHF in OKR get washing machines and fridges to sell then? Surely they dont buy them in??

I would definitely recommend freecycle.

I believe the Heart Foundation shop is one of the very few that DO take electrical goods.

I've bought a couple of electrical items from BHF..they have a tester guy come in and test all the white goods before resale.

actually a question re the printer, why doesn't it print photos any more? Let me know as I teach on a local photography course and doubtless my students would want to give a home to your printer.
