4. How should I dispose of electronics, old computers and TVs?
Electronics, computers and small TVs may be brought to the City of Plano Parkway Service Center on the 3rd Saturday of the month, 9-11 am. The Service Center is located at 4120 W. Plano Parkway (Plano Pkwy and Commerce St.) behind the city warehouse. They may also be taken to Dallas Computer Parts, 1135 E. Plano Pkwy, Ste #2, Monday through Friday, 9:00am – 3:00pm.

You can call and they will arrange pickup or fill out the on-line form. And they give you a receipt for the write-off. It would be pretty shitty to donate computers without drives, though. That's just MO, but it seems like you would just wipe them and leave them there, but that would only be if you were actually trying to help someone and not just get the money off your taxes
