Computers recycled as part of Earth Day initiative at Mac – Hamilton Spectator

Computers and out of date technology were being gathered Friday as part of Earth Day at the ACCESS Tech IT drive Friday at McMaster University.

Donated items were sanitized of personal data for disposal or donated to Empowerment Squared, a community organization that donates computers to those in need.

“Given social challenges highlighted by the impacts of COVID-19, access to adequate technology as a key determinant to overall community well-being is more important than ever,” said Leo Johnson, executive director of Empowerment Squared in a news release.

At the last event, students, University Technology Services and Facility Services collected 780 kilograms of used technology.
