Computers are an integral part of daily life, but as they and other electronic devices become obsolete more and more quickly, we’re faced with the growing problem of disposing of all our e-waste properly.
In parallel, we have found that a lot of teenagers have not signed up to Devika Learning workshops because they need to bring their own device.
In doing so, we feel that we can help better allocated unused laptops to teenagers that need them for our workshops. We are offering to take them from you and make them available to our students.
Thanks to our infrastructure partner, Zoom Computers, we will not refuse any laptop. They have the resources to help us do the checks, formatting, software updates and hardware upgrades needed to get them to the minimum requirement for our workshops.
Also, whatever is donated to our cause that is not usable will be disposed of at the Terracycle bins at our local Wollongong Officeworks, to make sure that we are playing our part in E-waste; which is assisting in the process of minimizing the electronic products thrown into landﬁll, which leak toxic materials into soil and water, resulting in contamination of the food chain. Additionally, rare and non-renewable materials are wasted instead of being re-used.
If you wish to hand over your unused laptop; please call us or email us via the contact us form.
