InterConnection provides computers to under-served people and communities around the world. From their Seattle-based computer recycling and reuse programs to schools and organizations far and wide, they make a connection that makes a difference. They create opportunity through computer reuse.

Company founder and director Charles Brennick was a presenter on the Gnomedex stage, teaching all of us what we should be doing with the old machines lying around the house and garage.

Donating your old machines and smartphones is safe and secure. All of your data is securely wiped from hard drives using Department of Defense standards. You’ll get a tax break when you donate equipment, since InterConnection is a certified 501c3 nonprofit organization. They’ll gladly give you a receipt when you drop something off to them.

By recycling your old stuff, you’re helping the planet. No parts end up sitting in a landfill somewhere. The company is also helping people in the community by providing valuable hardware skills training to local low-income volunteers through their computer reuse program. Those computers are then sent to schools and organizations within under-served communities worldwide.
