Computer Reuse and Recycling in Montreal

The people at No Computer Should Go To Waste are offering a city-wide (Montreal, QC, that is) disposal of computers. It’s on Saturday, April 16. Check the site for location, although I believe it’s the recycling station at Jarry.

Good news. First, the event organizers promise that computers will not be disposed of in landfills. Nor will they be sent to China or Mexico. Second, your computer could be reused as well if it meets the following conditions:

– If your computer is less than 5 years old and in working order

– The System must have Hard Drive, Monitor, Keyboard, & Mouse [but they’ll also take laptops].

– The Software License Agreements should be taped to the CPU box for installed software.

– YOU are responsible for removal of all personal information in the hard drive.

– Hardware needing repair is considered on a case-by-case basis.

You have to register your computer on the site to be eligible for the reuse.

If you run a nonprofit in the Montreal area, you could also get one of these computers free.

On April 16, as an added bonus, the people who are organizing the recycling event are promising music , entertainment , take-away green goodies and valuable awards for volunteers at the event.
