Non-working electronics   will be recycled through partnerships with FODAC and aggregate recyclers.


Examples of electronics   eligible for recycling are calculators, fax machines, keyboards, computer   mouses, working and non-working computers, broadband and other electronics   cabling, game controllers, remote controllers, scanners, phones (mobile and   landline), PDAs and routers.

“We are familiar with the good work FODAC does. Their generosity has helped us when our finances would not allow us to purchase a wheelchair at this time.”
