We turned your electronics green!

The eCycle drive too place in conjunction with the SWNI Annual Spring Cleanup, so along with your old computers, you could load up the car with yard debris, old appliances, scrap metal, and household donations to the Community Warehouse, a non-profit that helps low-income individuals and families improve their quality of life. Visit the SWNI site to learn about the Spring Cleanup.
Free Geek - Connecting Our Community, One Computer At A Time
To sort and recycle donations, PCC partnered with Free Geek, a local nonprofit staffed almost entirely by volunteers. Before recycling computers, Free Geek breaks them down into re-usable parts, using them to build new computers, which are donated to schools and other nonprofits. Volunteers can use their hours to earn rebuilt computers, thus allowing people of any income and ability level to own a computer and learn new technologies.
