Mission: Bridge the digital divide. Educate the public on the value of reusing materials and the importance of proper recycling techniques. Protect the environment by diverting hazardous materials from the landfill. Reduce manufacturers dependency on raw materials.
Programs: Environmental education programs: community outreach and education promoting electronic waste reduction, reuse and recycling. Provides job skill training to disenfranchised individuals by training them to disassemble and sort recyclables, refurbish electronics and learn skills in a public and retail environment.
human services programs: computer/electronic reuse & distribution program - provides free or low cost computers and hardware to underserved populations, schools, and nonprofit organizations. One computer reuse retail location provides access to purchase low cost reused and recyled electronics, internet ready computers, cell phones and other technology for low income and disenfranchised populations. All computers for sale in the reuse retail location and those placed within the community have been refurbished by volunteers and trainees.
recycling programs: computer hardware and electronic materials unable to be repaired/reused are dismantled and recycled using environmentally sound practices and regional vendors. We provide individuals and businesses a convenient opportunity to recycle hard to recycle electronic waste, thus diverting hazardous waste from the environment and recycling it into a valuable resource. We also divert from the landfill paper, plastic, vinyl and cardboard.
