When I upgrade homes and businesses with new technology, they often will give me their old equipment. It’s my policy to wipe any data from the computer. I often do one of two things: recycle it through a local vendor, or if it’s in good enough shape, I’ll hold on to it.
What I would love to do is be able to donate them to a local non-profit who would get tremendous use from the computers. I wipe them, install Ubuntu, and they run like brand new, since Ubuntu requires very little computing power to perform like a champ.
If you or anyone you know who is associated with a non-profit would love recycled computers, I would love to donate them. Please use the little green “Help” button and send me a message.
