On older units just take out the hard disks and destroy them (or put them in a safe place at home) and take the rest to your local municipal waste disposal facility. They are not really worth dismantling any further.

On newer units (less than five years) it may be worth to salvage the RAM, the video cards (if any) and the power supply unit if it's over 500W. Given how cheap motherboards are these days it's not really worth going any further.

K is spot on, keep the disk its a useful backup of what you had data wise till May 2019, ram might be worth something but the box, motherboard and other bits likley not.

You could type the model number into an ebay search then click the SOLD items to see if the box is worth anything but if <£40 it might not be worth it especially as you'd really need to wipe the disk (proper wipe...2/3 times) and reinstall Windows to be able to sell as a working system
