A new program that is being introduced by Relief IT is declaring that there is a “PC” way to dispose of PCs. Instead of taking old computers to already crowded landfills, the professional IT repair and consulting services company is calling on all Australians today to donate their old laptops and desktops so these may be recycled and reused. Relief IT’s new program is not only a move towards managing one’s environmental impact but also a tremendously effective way to reach out to disadvantaged communities.

“They can be donated, recycled, and put to good use by the experts at Relief IT. After being thoroughly inspected, cleaned, and restored, they will be donated to the elderly or struggling families in the city of Casey and Cardinia,” says Operations and Technical Lead for Relief IT, Miguel Martinez.

According to the desktop and laptop repair experts, the program was initiated due to a number of enquiries on whether the company sells second hand computers. Martinez explains further, “Most of these consumers are studying, wanting to practice computing skills to improve their employment opportunities or have school-aged children, who need these facilities, to complete their schoolwork. Gone are the days when books and libraries were a sole place for finding information; technology is changing and if Relief IT can help support the local community — then we will.”

Those who have old computers piling up in their garages or storage lockers are invited to email Martinez at this address: help(at)reliefit(dot)com(dot)au. Meanwhile, potential beneficiaries of the donated computers are encouraged to register at this page:

The IT repair (PC speed up, hardware upgrades, computer break fixes, etc.) and consulting Services Company will ensure that all data from donated computers will be permanently removed before they are issued to the recipients.

Relief IT offers services to homes and businesses. The company’s expertise extends to set-up and maintain, not just IT repairs. Among the Melbourne-based company’s many services are home Wi-Fi set-up, networking and troubleshooting, iPad and iPhone set-up and email sync, custom-built computers, and IT helpdesk and desktop support.

“With over 10 years of IT experience we have strong and extensive knowledge on the various issues individuals may encounter. Our aim is to deliver cost-effective IT solutions while sustaining a high standard of quality and ethical workmanship,” remarks Martinez. He adds, “With Relief IT increasingly developing from strength to strength, we have experienced an up lift in our quality referrals and repeat business over the last financial year, meaning our customer satisfaction levels are at their highest and are continually growing.”

As electronic waste increases three times faster than other types of waste in Australia, and as landfills grow smaller and smaller in space, Relief IT’s eco-friendly and socially-conscious program may just help the country manage — albeit on a smaller scale — the flow of e-waste stream.

Says Martinez about the call to recycle, “This concept will benefit the community, the environment and also provide individuals the opportunity to develop their skills, increase job capabilities and assist children with their studies. Who wouldn't want to be a part of such a rewarding cause?”
