Are you in or around Burnaby, BC? Safely recycle your computer
Donate your old computer and help put technology into the hands of a person with a disability.
When you upgrade your computer, how do you dispose of your old system? It might not be of use to you, but it can still hold significant value for others. As a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, we provide you with benefits.
Working with us can help you:
- Protect: Disposing of your computer through us helps to protect your valuable data. Because we are required to meet industry standards for data-wiping you can feel safer knowing that your data has been removed.
- Demonstrate: You are helping to advocate reuse and decrease waste by keeping your old, but useable, computer out of landfills, reducing waste and environmental impact.
- Provide: You are helping to supply computers that will be refurbished and provided to people with disabilities who otherwise would not have the means to buy one themselves. Through our Computer Comfort program, we provide free computer skills development as well as ongoing technical support on and off site. Computers are a vital link to the outside world. The knowledge and skills to use a computer can greatly improve independence, access to resources, and connections with family and friends for a person with a disability.
A tax receipt will be provided upon request.
