This October, to address the increasing demand for affordable computers and laptops, Let’s Get Together is partnering with Raptors 905, Vinyl Wrap Toronto, and Communitech Data Hub to host Tech Collect Drives at their locations.
The #LGTTechCollect Drive events are designed to allow the public and organizations in the area to drop-off their used, broken and unwanted devices (computers, laptops and other equipment) that will be safely recycled or refurbished, and circulated back to the community to help individuals and families desperately looking for access to technology to support their education and/or employment, as well as stay informed and connected with family and friends.
The drop-off events are scheduled for:
Sat, Oct 17, 2020, 10 am to 3 pm – Raptors 905, Paramount Fine Foods Centre,
Rinks Entrance A, 5500 Rose Cherry Place, Mississauga, ON L4Z 4B6
Sat, Oct 24, 2020, 10 am to 3 pm – Vinyl Wrap Toronto,
24 Ronson Dr, Unit 1, Etobicoke, ON M9W 1B4
Sat, Oct 31, 2020, 10 am to 3 pm – Communitech Data Hub,
14 Erb Street West, Waterloo, ON N2L 1S7
Electronics Recycling Association (ERA) will provide the collection bins and cages and will pick up the donated equipment to be safely recycled and refurbished.
The Region of Peel, University of Toronto Mississauga Centre for Student Engagement, On Point Basketball, and Peel Weekly News are also proud to support this worthwhile initiative.
