Computers and other computer peripherals will be accepted for recycling Saturday, May 31 at a special collection event.

The event will be held from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. – rain or shine – at the parking area at Bellevue Community College, 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E.

All computers, working or not, will be accepted for free, as a donation. A $10 handling fee will be charged for all monitors, $5 for printers and scanners that weigh less than 15 pounds. A tax deductible receipt is provided for all items. Hard drives will be securely erased on all donated computers.

Computers collected at the event will be refurbished and provided to schools and non-profit organizations around the world. Computers that are too old to be reused, monitors and computer peripherals will be properly recycled at the InterConnection Computer Reuse Center in Seattle and a local hazardous waste recycler. Proceeds from the event will go to the Computers for the World travel scholarship, which sends students to developing countries to set up computer labs.

Computers for the World (C4W) is an organization sponsored by Rotary Club, International. This club has travelled to all continents in the world setting up computer labs. More information is available at www.rotary5030.org

InterConnection is a Seattle based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing computers to underserved communities. Newer computer equipment will be refurbished and provided to low income, non profits and schools. www.interconnection.org

For more information or to volunteer to help, call Charles Brennick at 206-310-4547 or Andy McDonald at 206-465-4383.
