Make a difference: donate your cast-off computers
Help close the digital divide by donating to the CANZ
accredited recycling programme.
We depend on
support from the corporate sector, local and central
government departments. Donating surplus computers is
environmentally responsible and it helps your
community. CANZ is happy to publicise your donation, though
we also respect the preference of some organisations to
CANZ makes life simple for you
The process makes life simple for donors, who often develop
long-term relationships with CANZ refurbishing companies.
Equipment is usually collected (though if there are only one
or two machines, we prefer you drop them off yourselves).
Refurbishers provide full documentation for the transfer of
ownership. They confidentially wipe sensitive data from hard
drives. They remove the hassle of dealing with the many
community organisations that ask for used computers and
then expect donors to follow up on any problems. And you
rest easy in the knowledge that final disposal of your
equipment will be environmentally responsible.
You don't have
to be in the corporate sector: donations of machines
suitable for re-use in the CANZ programme may also be accepted
from from individuals
and not-for profits.
Your computers may be used in schools directly, or in the
Homes programme which is run in association with low-decile
interested in donating, get in touch with
CANZ or your nearest
accredited CANZ recycler.
