Bill Coleman & Tina Stennes, PCs for People, gave a great presentation about what the organization does and how we can help. PCs for People’s model contributes to environmental sustainability by intercepting usable computers before they reach landfills and refurbishing them for reuse. Businesses typically retire computers long before their usable life is over and this has contributed to America becoming the largest producer of electronic waste in the world. We offer businesses a certified secure electronic recycling service.
PCs for People is an organization that provides desktop and laptop computers to low income families for very low cost. They also provide affordable mobile internet services to those that qualify.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, there are approximately 110.2 million desktop computers, monitors, and laptop computers stockpiled in American storerooms, attics, garages, and basements. PCs for People provides an even better form of recycling, reuse. All electronic recycling is accepted FREE of charge. We do have suggested monetary donation amount for individual donations, monetary donations help cost associated with labor and processing items for reuse.
Businesses, don’t worry about the data on the hard drives as PCs for People is NAID (National Association of Information Destruction) AAA-certified data sanitation.
Our club will be hosting a Spring Clean-Up asking our members and neighbors to bring in their used computer equipment. More information coming soon.
