If anyone is looking for places to recycle their old computers, please keep us
in mind. We are ReSource (formerly known as Recycle North). We are a
501c3 nonprofit with locations in Burlington and Barre.
We are a registered Microsoft refurbisher and wipe donor data off any
donations. We reinstall the operating system and add programs like Word and
Excel. We will then either give them away to someone in need, another
nonprofit, a seeing impaired person or sell them at a reasonable price and use
any profit to support our other projects. All of the desktops we use in our
admin offices, four locations, and even our POS systems are from donated
We use the refurbishing process to train our apprentices. Our apprentices
are working on their A+ certification and hopefully will be gainfully employed
after completing their year with us. We also provide other opportunities for a
host of volunteers such as Special needs people or reach up volunteers. We
try to provide all of our volunteers with the opportunity to learn and feel
Any computers that cannot be used will be stripped of any useful parts.
What we can’t use will be sent to a Vermont recycler. The Ewaste will be
stripped which will provide jobs for Vermonters. One week this month we
recycled 11000 lbs of ewaste. We are a Vermont state registered collection
point for eWaste.
It would be great if you would consider us for anything you might have now or
may have in the future. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone looking
to recycle their old computers. We can offer free pickup anywhere in Vermont
if it would be worthwhile for us. Dropoffs are always welcome.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
