Box up your old computers and buy a few extra grocery items.
The PC Fix, in conjunction with One Green Planet, is hosting a recycling event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 13 at its Issaquah location, 1320 N.W. Mall St.
Organizer Selina Petersen hopes the community is attracted to attend for one of the event’s three goals:
- In recognition that most businesses update their offices in spring, PC Fix will accept and dispose of nearly all used electronic gear. PC Fix will also coordinate with local businesses to pick up used gear for disposal.
- PC Fix seeks food donations to help the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank keep its shelves stocked.
- PC Fix seeks old computers to donate to local classrooms in need of additional learning materials for students. Petersen said PC Fix checks out the computers and wipes the hard drive so students can properly use them.
“We are not just recycling,” Petersen said. “We will be reusing devices and put the time into fixing units to then donate to nonprofit businesses like Compassion House, Elks Lodge and the food bank. Our goal is to not just dump devices but to bring awareness to reuse and help out the nonprofit organizations.”
