The TechCycle Tech4ALL campaign is back!
By Danielle Sendou Ringgit
FOR THOSE OF YOU who missed the chance to donate your e waste last June, don’t worry since AIESEC (International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences) members of Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) is holding another e waste recycling campaign this time with the help of international AIESEC members from Japan, Egypt and Italy to spread awareness among Kuchingites about the importance of proper e-waste management.
If you still have old sets of laptops, chargers, printers or any kind of electronic gadgets lying around, just drop by CityOne where the team would be happy to take it off your hands. AIESEC will be there until Aug 10 from 10 am to 10 pm and at the Spring Shopping Mall from August 15 to 17.
For those who might not be familiar with the recycling campaign, AIESEC is collaborating with SOLS Tech, a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher based in Kuala Lumpur, where the data on donated items will be erased before being refurbished up to professional standards and being installed with genuine, licensed Microsoft software. The newly refurbished items will then be donated to NGOs, orphanages and other support systems
As for items broken beyond repair, they will be salvaged for parts and used in SOLS Tech free IT educational instruction courses to teach computer architecture.
