WHY REUSE TECH?

Recycling an unwanted computer sounds like a good choice, but it’s really shortsighted when considering the many benefits of computer reuse.

It’s Good for your budget
A used computer is up to 70% less expensive than a comparable new computer, which means buying a used computer extends your technology budget.

It's Good for the Environment
Ewaste, is the fastest growing form of municipal waste in the U.S. Over 50 million tons of ewaste is recycled each year. Computer reuse extends the life of a used computer which keeps old computer parts from a landfill. According to the EPA, reusing just one computer with a standard monitor prevents emission of over 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide.

It's Good for others
An increasing amount of social services, educational programs, and employment opportunities are only available to people that have access to computer technology. But many people and organizations on limited budgets can’t afford new equipment. Used computers are less expensive, making them affordable to all.
