Life has rather taken over at this point, as I had to take my youngest child out on a school trip all of Tuesday and take him to a hospital appointment today! However, I did have time to put an old iPod (2003 model) on Freecycle. As the iPod is broken, I can’t sell or donate it, but Freecyclers are an enthusiastic community who are often able to mend and make use of older electronical items. I’ve also posted my ancient Nokia to Recycle4charity. Tomorrow, I’m going to try and donate an old PowerBook to a charity that recycles or mends old computers.
