Community Donations Needed for Computer Recycling
IndependenceFirst has a computer recycling department staffed mainly by volunteers. These volunteers clean, refurbish and distribute computers to people with disabilities free of charge. Last year, they provided over 150 PCs to people with disabilities who otherwise couldn’t afford them. The recycling program depends upon the generosity of individuals and corporations for their PC supply. At this time of year, the waiting list of recipients is growing and supply is shrinking. I’m seeking your help. Please contact your IT department and ask them what they do with old PCs. Would they consider donating PCs to IndependenceFirst? Do you have a computer you'd like to upgrade or recycle (Pentium III or faster)? In addition to PCs, we welcome donations of monitors (17+ inches) and other related IT items. We can even pickup free of charge! If you or your organization would like to donate, the IndependenceFirst Computer Recycling Department can be reached at the following:
