Recycling is great, but going to a recycling center sucks!
If you’ve been―even once―you know what we’re talking about.
You show up to this huge industrial zone with your little car or van, rolling alongside enormous waste trucks, wondering if you’re in the right place, in the right lane, with the right items.
At some point, you find out the location you chose doesn’t accept all the items you brought, so the rejects will have to hitch a ride back home with you.
And can we talk about how sketchy some of their locations can be? If we’re doing something good, why does it feel like we’re trespassing on private property, looking for the perfect spot to carry out shady deals?
In all honesty, we’re not surprised to see how much e-waste ends up in landfills. Human beings typically follow the path of least resistance, and the path to a recycling center is filled with obstacles and frustration. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Among the many reasons we started New Life Tech Group, one of them was to make it easy for people to recycle their old computers and laptops. When the task is easy, it gets done.
Here’s What Happens When You Skip The Recycling Center In Atlanta
We Pick Up Your Donations In Atlanta
You don’t need to drive anywhere: not to a recycling center or even to New Life Tech Group. When we say we want to eliminate the barriers that stand between people and their motivation to recycle old devices, we mean it.
While some people in Atlanta prefer to drop off their old computers, others would rather have us swing by to haul off their stockpile of old tech. Our service area stretches from Atlanta, Buckhead, and all of Fulton County to Forsyth County, and Gwinnett County, including cities like Lawrenceville.
Regardless of how we receive your items, they’re always in excellent hands once they’re with New Life Tech Group.
Your Donations Benefit Local Schools, After-School Programs, and Deserving Children in Atlanta
Every computer and laptop you donate helps bridge the technology gap in Atlanta between underserved communities and those having an abundance of resources.
Children with limited access to technology are often at a huge disadvantage to students who can easily find online resources to complete assignments, self-educate through online tutorials, and learn new skills.
Contributions to New Life Tech Group are not sent to just any location. Your donations help your Atlanta neighborhood. We invite everyone to bring their unwanted equipment, regardless of how old, broken, or inoperable they appear to be. You'd be shocked at the technological wizardry we do on contributions. We constantly give old computers new life! It's written in our name.
Say Goodbye To Those Dreadful Trips To The Recycling Center
Not only is the trip to the recycling center a royal pain in the you-know-what, but the irony of driving e-waste to recycling centers is that the carbon footprint of many individuals burning gas to go to these facilities works against the environment we’re trying to save.
When individuals and families make the short trip to New Life Tech Group or invite us to pick up donations from their homes in Atlanta, it allows us to make one big trip to haul “the village’s” old computers to the correct recycling facilities. Think of it like carpooling for e-waste.
We’ve streamlined the sorting process, perfected the logistics of delivering large quantities of e-waste to recycling facilities, and we know where to take items, so no component gets left behind.
Remember, All Donations Are Tax Deductible
While no one would take a $20 bill, crumple it into a ball, and toss it into the trash, there are other ways people are doing just that.
By throwing out old computers and laptops, folks are essentially throwing away $50, $100, or much more in tax deductions. If we weigh the decision against the time it takes to drive these items to a recycling facility, it’s easy to say, “Bah… It’s not worth it,” but when New Life Tech Group is here to pick up the donations right from your doorstep, there’s no good reason to miss out on these easy-to-get deductions.
We Wipe All The Hidden Data From Your Computers, Hard Drives, and Laptops
When it comes to your personal information, you can never be too safe. In the same way that people shred important documents before putting them in the trash, your data should be removed from any devices destined to be reused or recycled.
Most people are unaware that files with sensitive information can be recovered―even after their laptop or computer has gone through a factory reset. To ensure these hidden files are thoroughly destroyed, New Life Tech Group uses methods laid out by the Department of Defense to erase the data on the devices we receive.
Even when our Atlanta donors assure us their computer or laptop has been “wiped” clean, we still put them through the same process. Whether your donation contributes to a child’s education or ends up in the hands of a recycling facility worker, you can trust that if you’ve first given it to us, it will be safe to pass on.
Proud to Serve the Following Areas:
Is your location outside of our radius? No worries, just let us know! If there's a way to make special accommodations to pick up your computer donations, we'll find it!
