Old computers and laptops can be a bit more of a bother to get rid of because you want to make certain that your information has been wiped before you recycle it … and, then, you need to turn it in during special recycling days, which usually involve making a separate trip to a particular location on a certain day. Yep, a pain.
However, a few minutes of online research to find out the when and the where – and then the trip itself, won’t take as much time as you think. If you don’t know how to clear your files either learn through an online tutorial or ask a tech-knowledgeable friend, coworker, or family member to help you.
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Organize the contents of one digital or physical file folder. Eliminate what you don’t need and keep what you do.
