Have you gotten a new computer and need to remove your old "working" computer?
If you are considering recycling or refurbishing your old or unused working desktop or laptop computer system, we now provide a drop off location to accept working computer donations. 

 
Where does your donation go?

The computers are refurbished by FreeGeek Seattle who partners with FCS STEAM Lab to support free technology education and computer re-use programs to benefit the community. 

Your donation of a working old computer desktop or laptop provides the necessary bill of materials for adult and youth volunteers to learn about the exciting world of sustainable computing best practices and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) within a fun and safe community environment. 

Participants engaged in this program learn the basics and advanced topics on computer hardware, software, and learn to provide tech support of computer and networks for other business or non-profit organizations with the goal that they are building important work-integrated project based skills and obtaining technical job certifications.

Computers are refurbished by the adult and youth volunteers in FreeGeek Seattle, who donates refurbished computers to any volunteer who completes the Adoption or Build programs, as well as, the other non-profit organizations that share a common purpose in serving the community.
 
What can I donate?

We support reuse of technology for a more sustainable planet. We ask that in-kind computer donations are for only "working" computers that can be refurbished and re-used. By accepting only working computers, we have a greater chance to ensure that the computer is properly cleaned, refurbished, and re-granted to those in need. Although we are capable of handling non-working parts, in-kind donations of known damaged computers or parts should be directed to ethical electronic recycling programs that are available in WA. Free Geek partners with local WA E-cyclers to ensure that donations are processed appropriately.
 

Where can I donate?
