Computer donation programs are a great way for corporations to extend the life of their PCs and laptops, give their computers to charities and those in need, and do something great for their communities.
But what happens when the donated item reaches end of life? Most recipients aren't going to know what to do, and we want to make sure it's properly recycled. Enter the Apto Solutions Responsible Donation Program. We work with corporations and manufacturers to not only facilitate the donation of computers, but also make sure it's properly recycled at the end of it's lifecycle.
Apto Solutions collects equipment that you wish to donate and processes that equipment as if it were going to be resold. Instead of reselling, your equipment and devices are re-imaged and donated to a participating charity organization.
To streamline the donation process, fees for future equipment returns and recycling goes into an escrow account for when the device comes back to Apto Solutions. We use the funds from this account to pay all shipping and recycling fees. Apto then takes care of all logistics involved with returning equipment and the donation process so you and your team can get back to what you do best.
The Responsible Donation Program process includes a full assessment of equipment to prepare it for its next life as a donated item.
After Apto receives computers and performs functionality testing, data sanitization, and provides certification statements, the team re-images all devices. Designated charities will receive each donated item with certification paperwork, end-of-life recycling instructions, along with a sticker attached stating where it came from and how to properly recycle the device at the end of its use.
The circle is closed with a certification of destruction message provided to the donating party that details how many additional years of good use was added to each product.
