Recycling Computers in Australia

Because the technology used in computer hardware and software is constantly being improved, computers become outdated very quickly. The average lifespan of a personal computer is only about three years, while computer monitors, printers and scanners usually last between three and seven years.

One way to reduce electronics waste is to refurbish and reuse these old computers. In Australia, charity organisations like ComputerBank and Compassionate Computers collect old computers and distribute them to schools, community organisations and needy families.
