California Wildfires - Our hearts and thoughts go out to all of you affected by the devastation and discomfort of this fire season.  We recognize the disruption to the lives of your families and friends, and your businesses.  May you all feel the strength and energies to heal and move through this, may you find your resilience as you put your lives back together, and may you experience a better life in the days and months ahead.

If you have lost your computer, AND use backup programs on the internet that you pay for, or have mac products and are connected to icloud, we can assist you in reclaiming the data you have saved.  Please check with our tech room.

We have contributed to funds and groups affected and we will continue to support the our communities affected by these damaging fires.

We have returned to daily operations however if there are road closures or cleanup activities in your area, this may affect business pickups.

Our programs in San Francisco and Santa Rosa serve business, industry, government and residential customers in the S.F. Bay Area.  We make business pickups and host Collection Events.   For Drop-off or business pickup, WE TAKE:

Laptops, Computers, Flat Panels, Servers, Network Equipment, Cell Phones, and the parts that go inside (cables, motherboards and cards, AC adapter/chargers for laptops, loose hard drives).

We DO NOT take household electronics, appliances, batteries or bulbs; copiers, microwaves, printers, CD/DVD discs, tapes, books, paper, metal, or plastic.

WE REuse FIRST, and Recycle Second.   We provide refurbished computer equipment to qualifying non-profit organizations and individuals-through-organizations.  Our past internship programs are an effective tool for students embarking on a career in technology; students learn and teach their peers.  Your donation of equipment has helped further this cause.
