NEA got some recycling programmes for printers, computers and other electronic waste. Think Starhub is one of the companies involved too.

I had a Canon which died a year or so ago. I brought it to their service center, they took it in for $50 to offset a new one which was delivered to my home. The old printer was properly disposed, got some rebate for a new unit and free home delivery too. Thought it was very nice deal.

There's a link to a poster for customer service in Funan taking in old printers/computers.
Has anyone done that?
