Also Wanted – Packaging for recycling

If you have any of the following packaging and can bring them along to us at a Show then we can make good use of them, and help the environment!

Types of Boxes that are of use:

  • RiscPCs – one or two slice
  • A7000/+
  • 14″, 15″, 17″ & 21″ monitors – any make/model
  • Nikon Coolscan III (LS30) Scanner
  • Toner cartridges, medium size (useful for sending RiscPC PSUs in)
  • Boxes are only of use if they have most of their internal packaging.

NB. At the risk of telling my grandmother how to suck eggs: if you can‘t fit large boxes in a small car then you could flat pack‘ them, i.e. remove internal packaging, turn the box upside down and open the bottom like the top, if you turn the box on its side it will now flatten, you also then fold along one of the vertical edges to reduce the size in half. Please bring the internal packaging with the box.
