Where PCs Go to Die

What to do with computers that have passed their expiration dates? John Janthor, vice president of information technology at L.A. Weight Loss Centers, is quite happy to kick over the job of getting rid of them to someone else.

"We don't want to deal with it," he says. "Typically, disposal is a real challenge. You can't just rent a truck and drive it down to the local trash hauler."

The Horsham, Pa.-based chain of 850 weight-loss centers ships old computers back to its original supplier, PC Connection, which either refurbishes the systems for resale or breaks them down to salvage their components. "We're not looking to recover any value," Janthor says. "We just want to get rid of them."
