Need to Recycle Computers, Electronics, or Small Appliances?

I LOVE recycling. Taking something which is used up and turning it into something else is a fine thing.

What I LOVE more is redistribution. Collecting unwanted items and redistributing those items to people who want them; that is the best kind of recycling.

So, when I hear about nearby folks doing just that, I have to spread the word!

The non-profit Marin Computer Resource Center (a licensed ewaste collector) accepts ANY office or household electronics for FREE. Items are tested, refurbished and distributed to schools, libraries, non-profits, and the disadvantaged.

Donations are tax deductible.

If you need help wiping your hard drive before donating your computer, they will wipe it for you for a $10 fee. If you want your items picked up, they will bring their cargo van to your location for a $100 fee.

From their website:

We give old computers new life by placing refurbished products with local non-profit organizations, schools, libraries, victims of fire and tragedy, and low-income and disabled households. Our volunteer technicians produce computers every week from your donations, to help organizations and families that would not otherwise have the means to obtain this technology.

More from their site:

Your tax deductible equipment donations help us to provide no cost refurbished equipment to schools, non-profits, and the disadvantaged in Marin County. We are in constant need of supplies, equipment, and services. If you have something we need and would like to help, please let us know.

Volunteers come to us from all walks of life to apply for hands-on experience with building and testing computers, monitors and printers that they would not ordinarily have access to. People who are working off Community Service hours also apply at MCRC to help support our organization while we support our community.

What do we do with the stuff we can’t bring back to life? We recycle it! All unusable material is shipped to our sister facility in Berkeley, and then broken down to component parts and channeled to the appropriate recycler.

Please come in and drop off your electronic equipment at the Marin Computer Resource Center, and know that you are a part of what we do.
