Donation is available for computers, electronics

February 26, 2013

By Staff

CleanScapes is accepting unwanted computers and electronics for donation at the company’s Gilman Village store.

Through a partnership between CleanScapes and Seattle-based nonprofit organization InterConnection, residents can drop off old electronics at 317 N.W. Gilman Blvd. Each donation is tax-deductible and benefits InterConnection’s technology access programs.

InterConnection then collects the materials and erases the computer hard drives using U.S. Department of Defense protocol. Reusable computers then get refurbished and recycled to nonprofit organizations for use.

InterConnection refurbishes and reuses more than half of the computers it receives. The organization’s refurbished laptops, tablets and desktops benefitted more than 800 nonprofit organizations nationwide and helped thousands of low-income families and students in the Puget Sound area last year.

If the electronics cannot be refurbished, InterConnection recycles them in accordance with certified standards and practices.
