Old cellphone chargers and similar

I have a couple of file boxes of these things. It seems a shame to trash them even though they are not much use. Not even sure if listing them is worth it.

Does anyone know of anyone who has a use for such things?

I am in Auckland, incidentally.

Seems they have no use at all. This is from the Starship hospital cellphone appeal Q & A's
Do you accept chargers and accessories?

Yes we accept all chargers and accessories, although they have no re sale value, we dispose of them in line with environmental best practice.

Thanks. We sent them our old cell phones but didn't think they wanted chargers.

I posted the note as I have been surprised in the past over what some people like to do with spare parts. Have looked at the Auckland council site, of course.

Should simply add them to my collection ;-)

I have a massive ever growing box of old electrics/electronics, circuit boards, joysticks, chargers, cables, components etc., not to mention a mountain of old software and manuals. It all has to go sooner or later. mrfxit took the last pile!

The last truck was too small, the van is bigger ;-)

Tried to dump an old PC the other day. The tip people wanted $25 and I had to dump it separately to to rest of the trailer load which cost another $40. Took the PC home and devised plan B. You would not want to take a load of old electronics to a tip.
