Governmental Used Computer Donations

CFC receives governmental used computer donations from the State of California, Federal donations, county and local governments.

CFC has new Data Destruction services available.  Since the state requires that all data be sanitized prior to leaving the facility, CFC can bring our Degausser or new Data Destroyer to your site.  We offer a Certification of Destruction, a spreadsheet listing the hard drive by serial number, the date and method of destruction.  This can be used for your audit trail as proof of data security.  Our new portable equipment can even destroy Solid State Drives, flash drives and memory cards.  Take a look at our new addition of hardware in our Data Destruction Brochure.

The State of California lists Chico Unified School District as the program name. Some federal donations are also listed as Chico Unified School District as they are our sponsoring organization.

State of California departments wanting to donate to Computers for Classrooms can select Chico Unified School District on their Form 152. Please select Code 7 and then go to Butte County, Chico Unified School District. Computers for Classrooms can assist other schools throughout California and not just Chico Unified School District.

If you need any further information in order to complete your donation forms, please contact us for assistance.

CFC can pick up directly from offices. We can bring sufficient staff, pallets and shrink wrap. Call our Director of Transportation, Louis Davis, to discuss the best way of handling your donation. Call 530-592-8789 or email LDavis@ComputersForClassrooms.org.  The following are acceptable items(There is no charge for state, or government agencies for pickups)

CFC uses White Canyon to wipe all hard drives.  Even though you have wiped the drives, we do so again using an expensive, but excellent program.  Even hidden sectors are wiped.  We can also wipe solid state drives using the White Canyon software.  Your data will be removed completely or the hard drive destroyed.

CFC was the first non-profit organization to become R2 Certified in the world.  The federal EPA wants all recipient organizations to be R2 or E-Stewards Certified as we must follow the highest standards of Recycling.  Learn about the exacting requirements of meeting this standard including annual audits from outside auditors.

We would be happy to furnish references from our satisfied customers.

The State of California is sending only 15% of its Surplus for Reuse rather than Recycling.  There are 2 million children in California that do not have access to technology at home.  There is a better way!  Allow Computers for Classrooms to handle your surplus and to provide a low-cost option for schools and families to have a vital tool – technology at home.
