Salam alikoum dear brothers and sisters,

I have a question concerning this charity project. What happens when 
computers getting too old? Is there some organization in Morocco that 
recycles old computers and monitors? A lot of electronic devices contain 
materials that are poisonous for the Moroccan environment. The Western 
world really like to get rid of old electronics to poor countries like 
Morocco and other African countries, it's cheaper and cleaner for them 
and at the same time it looks like they're generous.

So, how do we deal with that?
I'm a Moroccan brother from the Netherlands.
Alaikoum salam wa rahmatoullah ou barakatouhou.
