Re: What to do with old vacuum?

Probably too late now Phil but most Vacuum Cleaner shops will discount your purchase of a decent vacuum if you trade in your old one..
Other wise, smashing the old one will require you to clean up the mess afterwards, so my advice would be to keep the cord and put the rest in the trash can.

Don't keep the cord - they get a _very_ hard life on a vacuum cleaner.
If you're unlucky enough to have bought a Dyson (over-priced far-Eastern import) then it's usually just the cord that has failed. They're infamously unreliable, with the cord breaking where it enters the casing.
