For over 6 years My Tech Guys has been taking computers with life still left in them and re-purposing them for non-profits like YANA. CompuCycle in Cumberland used to do this but when Encorp took over the idea of fixing up old computers was not in their plans and the program ended.
“It felt great to take something one person had no more use for and be able to fix it up so it had value for someone else. Keeping useful computers out of the landfill was win-win” says Frank Biermann, former CompuCycle manager and current My Tech Guys Comox store Sales Manager.
My Tech Guys are happy to deal with your unneeded computer equipment through our Re-Purpose Program. We will review and determine which option will be the best for your donated equipment:
* We will recycle your system for you after removing your hard drive
On average a computer that is less than 5 years old may still have some life left in it and be fast enough to run the latest operating systems and software.
“Often it is a failing hard drive that sends the old system to the rubbish bin when the rest of it is still working fine, but the cost of repair is too high. By donating our time to fix it, it is a win-win-win. Customers feel great, it stays out of the landfill and the non-profits get a system to use.” says My Tech Guys owner Bob Wells.
