Waste PCs recycled for community
Electronics News

"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," 
Nicholson said."
