Who: Anyone at Woodward Academy and in our community who has technology items
they wish to recycle properly.
What: Technology equipment including:
- desktop computers & servers
- monitors including LCDs
- printers & scanners
- digital cameras & camcorders
- mobile phones & accessories
- cables & computer batteries
- software & CD/DVDs
- and almost anything else associated with technology
Note: We do not accept appliances including non-LCD TVs.
All items are assessed by CFY to refurbish and reused in their program. Other items are properly e-cycled by ePlanet eWaste. CFY performs a military-grade data erasing technique on hard drives. Woodward Academy's IT department also e-cyles their equipment through these organizations during the year.
To learn about each part of the program, please see the links to the right.
Cost/Tax Info: A $1 donation for each monitor, CPU, printer or other large items. This will be used to support programs at the Terranova School in Africa*. Tax receipts are available from CFY for equipment donations (they will send you a confirmation after a copy of your form is turned in after the drive), see page 2 of flyer below. Note: at this time these items will NOT be sent to the Terranova School as it is cost prohibitive for WA to both refurbish and ship equipment to Africa.
Why: Keep equipment out of the landfills and give it to a great cause (CFY). Also, help support Woodward’s sister school in Zambia Africa, the Terranova School.
Student Service Hours: Upper School students can earn community service hours by assisting with the drive on Saturday morning. Each drive needs 5-8 students so please email Mrs. McIver for more information. Woodward North Student Council will be assisting with this event.
Thanks for your help in keeping e-waste
out of our landfills!
