Make a difference: donate your cast-off computers

Help close the digital divide by donating to the CANZ accredited recycling programme.

We depend on support from the corporate sector, local and central government departments. Donating surplus computers is environmentally responsible and it helps your community. CANZ is happy to publicise your donation, though we also respect the preference of some organisations to donate confidentially.

CANZ makes life simple for you
The process makes life simple for donors, who often develop long-term relationships with CANZ refurbishing companies. Equipment is usually collected (though if there are only one or two machines, we prefer you drop them off yourselves). Refurbishers provide full documentation for the transfer of ownership. They confidentially wipe sensitive data from hard drives. They remove the hassle of dealing with the many community organisations that ask for used computers – and then expect donors to follow up on any problems. And you rest easy in the knowledge that final disposal of your equipment will be environmentally responsible.

You don't have to be in the corporate sector: donations of machines suitable for re-use in the CANZ programme may also be accepted from from individuals and not-for profits.

Your computers may be used in schools directly, or in the Computers in Homes programme which is run in association with low-decile schools.

If you’re interested in donating, get in touch with CANZ or your nearest accredited CANZ  recycler.
