Donation / Recycling Policy

Our Commitment to Donating and Recycling

The Help Desk tries to donate or recycle all used computers, whether they work or not. (We hope to avoid trashing any computers or parts at all.) We are committed to helping non-profit organizations and disposing of unusable parts in an environmentally sound manner.


The Help Desk’s first priority is to donate any and all used computers to non-profit organizations, prioritizing educational institutions above other non-profits.


If we cannot find a non-profit institution to which to donate our computers, or if a computer or components aren’t functioning, we will give systems to organizations or companies committed to repairing, selling or responsibly recycling/disposing computer components.

Other Computer Recycling

Individuals should bring old computer equipment to the Help Desk for donation or recycling during the Help Desk's business hours. 

Our Donation and Recycling Priorities

  1. Donation to non-profit educational institutions
  2. Donation to other non-profit organizations
  3. Gift to for-profit organizations or companies committed to environmentally sound recycling or disposal 
  4. Directly sending items to be recycled
