[Computerbank] Draft - Statement of Donation of Equipment

Greetings all;
	i just can't leave a "really interested in opinions" outburst like that 
dangling - pollies beware! :)  Just stirring the pot here, i can't pretend to 
speak from experience on this one.  

	Individuals may just have second thoughts if we charge them to act charitably  
with their old hardware.  Also, if we're charging the corporations for 
responsibly disposing of their monitors and securely destroying copies of 
their old confidential data, should we consider a certificate / chit / 
receipt / whatever to provide them some piece of mind?

	What charges / remuneration do SIMS metals award for the dead hardware we 
contract them to pick up?  

	Food for thought.  Best regards and faithfully yours,
