Waste PCs recycled for community
"The first 20 recycled computers will be handed over to families and
community groups in Melbourne as a result of the PC Rebuild Program run by
the City of Melbourne Council and Mission Australia.
The program aims to re-use computer equipment and provide training,
stripping the PCs of any unlicensed software before refitting them with
word-processing, database, spreadsheet and web browser access as well as
appropriate shareware and ongoing support, according to City of Melbourne
Cr Tony Nicholson.
"The City of Melbourne is taking a leadership role in this program, and
we'd like to encourage other businesses to consider getting involved in
re-using redundant equipment in a manner that supports our community,"
All the best
