Riverside county had made a commitment to support our community through the repurposing of surplus technology equipment.
The electronic surplus, primary computers and related technology, from within Riverside County are transported to a central facility, where they go a process to remove all sensitive data, called data sanitization, that ensures the proper removal of data from our surplus equipment.
The working computers then get refurbished and distributed to non-profit organizations that serve the those in need throughout the county. Alternatively, some of the computers and printers are repurposed to serve County agencies and departments.
Other electronics no longer needed or not suitable for donation, are sold on an auction site to bring funding into the program or are sold. The computers and related electronics that are broken or non-functional are sent to an R2 certified E-waste company that can properly dispose of the items in compliance with environmental regulations.
