Tech for Good

We generate around 40 million tons of electronic waste every year, worldwide. That's like throwing 800 laptops every second! An average cell phone user replaces their unit once every 18 months. E-waste comprises 70% of our overall toxic waste and less than 20% is recycled properly.

 

In partnership with Sam McCone, who also owns and runs McCone Properties, and https://www.reecycle.app/, we are now able to rehome preloved technology!

 

Does your company have any technology that it would like to clear out for a cause? If so, please be in touch with Sam McCone on tech@thriftforgood.org / +971 50 927 9079

 

We will:

  1. Arrange collection of your items (free of charge)
  2. Wipe data if not already done
  3. Clean and test
  4. Should they be in working condition, sell your items on preloved sites for fair rates
  5. Should the item no longer be in working condition, we will safely recycle this with Reecycle.app, ensuring you leave no waste behind
  6. We will donate 100% of the profits to beautiful children’s charity projects in partnership with Gulf for Good

 

Are you an individual looking to clear out your old technology? We accept laptops and cell phones in our stores.You can drop off any day any time or book your collection, sponsored by Shyft Courier. More information here: https://thriftforgood.org/pages/declutter

For other items, please bear with us as we get set up – this is coming soon!
