Can we have those laptops & iPads you schools/companies don’t want?

Hoboken laptops being discardedSchools and companies buy laptops and iPads. Later, they upgrade or just don’t want them any more and they get thrown away. How can we get that technology into the hands of community members who can use them?

Share a comment if you have an idea about how we can acquire equipment that is earmarked to be discarded and dismantled.

Please understand, I have no equipment to give away 🙁
