The donor is responsible for the deletion of all data that may be contained on the computer hardware. There are several products available for data removal and cost for these software solutions vary with several being free – a Google search will review numerous options.

I’m not a company, can I still donate computer equipment?

Yes! In fact, anyone can donate computer equipment. Individual donations are greatly appreciated.

Will my equipment definitely be accepted?

It is not always possible to accept all donated equipment, mostly due to the age and operability of some devices.
