Each year, Americans dispose of roughly 250 million computers and Electronics. Only 11.4% of e-waste in this country is properly recycled and it is the fastest growing waste stream in the United States. Computers contain dangerous toxins from lead, cadmium, mercury and other hazardous materials which if not properly handled and disposed, contaminate our environment.
Our mission is to reduce the electronic waste in our landfills by taking donations of computers and related accessories and refurbishing them to distribute them to individuals, charities and non-profits in need. Bridging the digital divide by providing these basic tools is a crucial and often overlooked step in helping people to succeed in today’s world and overcome many obstacles in life.
We are also interested in working with other non-profits, churches and charities that support service and volunteering programs to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement. We hope to be able to provide your agency or clients of your agency with custom technology solutions to meet your needs.
