Send them to me
Take them to camera club, always lots of takers.
Take them into your local health centre or go round the Doctor's Surgeries - they love them in these places as people like looking at pics as they wait. Hospital waiting areas are also popular, and the Renal suites particularly like them for their patients on dialysis as it gives them something different to read too.
If you represent a local camera club, collect as many as you can and drop them off as above, staple details inside the front cover of each mag and ask them to put a small A4 poster above the mags on the wall.
I'll never dispose of mine; I enjoy rereading them, and I learn something each time. I'm taking mine with me.
Mine are off to camera club on Thursday
I just switch off the computer.
Quote: How do you dispose of your old photo mags bin em or pass them on
Take them to the Camera Club on our magazine exchange nights.
Put them in a recycling box/bin.
Having brought many of the best ones to Canada when I moved here 21 years ago I will not throw them out but they do look very dated
I bought all the magazines going when I rediscovered photography about ten years ago. Hoarded them all, then one day I asked myself what on Earth was I keeping them for? Threw about £500 worth in the bin, and was glad to be shot of them. The only magazine I've taken for the last 5 years is the RPS Journal (comes free to members) although I've bought a few Photoshop tutorial mags in the last 2 or 3 months. Now I'm finished with formal study I can go freestyle with what I'm learning! Really though, I don't need to buy these mags either - there's any amount of free tutorials online.
I found charity shops didn't want old magazines. Seemed crazy to me as a lot of the articles were timeless.
They would now go for recycling.
But as I rarely buy them now, and have disposed of quite a few already, there won't be many going.
I did put 100s in the bin .. then started to give them to my local college.. I know its a pain taking them .. but if you can get a student to pick them up ever few months.... I don't buy many mags nowdays "only when I have one of my pics in" ...
