Founded in 2000, PC Rebuilders & Recyclers has a two-fold purpose of bridging the digital divide and supporting environmental responsibility through the refreshment of prematurely retired computer systems. PCRR was launched by Willie Cade in his basement. Since then it has grown into a 13,000 square foot refurbishing facility. To date our program has placed computers in schools, non-profit organizations and need-based homes proving that limited funding does not preclude access to technology.
Our cost-recovery model is based on generous equipment donations from corporations and other large institutions. PC Rebuilders & Recyclers refurbishes and upgrades the equipment with Microsoft software keeping current with educational technology standards. As the first Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (MAR), we offer complete, refurbished computer systems as a cost-effective alternative to new equipment. With this model we are able to customize systems to support school district technology requirements and individual non-profit office needs while maximizing limited budget resources.
Why It's Important
It is our responsibility to do the right thing
