Converting retired corporate tech into tools and opportunities for people since 2002. Companies like IDEXX Laboratories, Sappi, and Bangor Savings Bank ‘give IT’ by having to give IT.
get IT. pickup their retired technology, destroy any data to the highest standards, recycle the non-reusable material to international best practices. The reusable technology is then refurbished to create a high quality, low or no-cost source of computers, training, and support for nonprofits, disadvantaged individuals, and families who need to ‘get IT’ to achieve literacy, health, wellness, employment, and educational goals. The term used to describe this mission is called Digital Inclusion. To date, we have received and processed more than 6 million pounds of retired corporate technology, diverted 1.7 million pounds of that ‘waste’ from disposal to reuse, providing personal computer access throughout Maine and New England used by more than 40,000 people. This consolidation of mission, services, and resources yields a significant increase in capacity and organizational sustainability. “We can now double the amount of material we receive from the corporate sector and proportionately increase the number of crucial tools we provide to help people reach their educational, career, and personal goals,” explains co-founder Chris Martin. “The combining of these two efforts will mean a real and positive impact for the populations we serve, our corporate partners, our environment, and ultimately Maine’s future.”
