what to do with your old computer

To Plan Or Not To Plan

Let me guess, you haven’t made your plans for how you are celebrating NYE?

“It’s October!” you say, “Give me a break! I don’t even plan for events two weeks in advance, let alone 2 months.” It’s OK, I do become OCD on things like this, especially big holidays or events that I know the choices will become endless, but I usually have an idea of what I want to do, and then I narrow things down by cost and prior commitments.

So, even if you are not a big planner and you fly by the seat of your pants through life, letting life just happen to you, there’s room for both with this short BLOG.

Whether you plan for it or not, we here at New Life Technology Group will take your electronic donations. For the planners, we know you are already considering year end donations, and office reconfigure plans for the new work environment. Certainly, with the pandemic, it’s caused you to plan differently than ever before. For the non-planners, you’re the type that just use your electronics till they break or at least slow down and affect your user experience, then you decide you need something else and you look to discard it quickly. Relax, both scenarios work for New Life Technology Group.

You see, we collect electronics of all kinds: used, broken, working, or not. We take them in and turn them into something that others can use, especially laptops. Did you know that 100% of all donations we receive are recycled or repurposed? Even better, when it comes to laptops, a portion of what we take in that are salvageable, go right to our Computers For Kids Program. This program is unique and one of a kind. We deliver refurbished laptops to students in the Atlanta metro area who may not otherwise be able to afford it. Some families have more than one student underfoot, yet only have one household computer to get work done. We want to change that dynamic and put laptops into more hands so students can continue to learn and excel. As long as remote learning is in demand our need will be great.

This is where you come in whether you’re a planner or procrastinator. We need your electronics, especially laptops, to keep up with the demand. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generous donations from the community. Whether your company is downsizing and needs to be relieved of excess electronic equipment, or you are an individual not knowing how to properly dispose of your unwanted electronics, we are here for you.

With your help, we can help students thrive, but you know what else happens? We prevent our landfills from taking on this unwanted waste. E-waste is a huge problem globally. There’s so many countries that do nothing to properly dispose of such items, and we do not want to join those ranks. As mentioned, we properly recycle 100% of what we take in. We have resources and vendors that help us break down every type of electronic material, from the wires and software side of things to all the hardwire and metals. It’s truly an undertaking that needs more awareness these days. We are happy to be an organization that knows our place and where we fit in this cycle. So what we need most is the connection from you. That connection that comes from you understanding how important it is to recycle, but then goes the extra mile to actually do something about it. We appreciate it greatly when you choose New Life Technology Group as your partner in this endeavor.

Should you have something now or in the future, please keep us at the top of your list and your mind. We can’t do this without you! If you came across us intentionally via our marketing efforts on Google and/or social media or you searched organically and we came up, it takes a lot to keep non-profit organizations like ours afloat. Should you not have any electronics to donate, but would like to support our cause with a monetary donation of any amount, we’d appreciate it and be happy to accommodate you there as well. Your donations are tax deductible and will go a long way to securing our mission of helping students succeed across metro ATL and keep electronics out of our landfills.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to make a donation, whether that’s in person or online. Our Alpharetta office is open Monday through Friday from 8am – 4pm, or for your convenience you can donate online here.

We look forward to partnering with you!
