What does InterConnection do with my devices?

1. You give your 7-year-old or newer functioning laptops, tablets, and cell phones to InterConnection.

2. They refurbish the devices for individuals and organizations in need of technology.

3. If they can’t refurbish they will securely recycle your device.

How does this help ACTION?

1. ACTION receives credits for your gently-used laptop to acquire fully-functional refurbished laptops from the InterConnection Store for Nonprofits that ACTION can repurpose via our Laptop Repurpose Ministry.

2. ACTION also receives a portion of the proceeds when InterConnection has to recycle donated cell phones and laptops or tablets that can’t be refurbished. So, all donated devices support ACTION.

Live outside the USA?

Sorry, InterConnection is not capable of receiving your tech donation in person or with our USA USPS prepaid mailing label.

Click to email Rob Taylor and tell him you would like to give technology to benefit ACTION. If ACTION has missionaries or ministries in your country we might have an opportunity for you to give. Also see our Laptop Repurpose Ministry.

HOW TO PACK YOUR DEVICE

1. Find a box of a suitable size.

2. Wrap your devices in bubble wrap or use packing peanuts.

3. Place the items in the box and tape it up.

4. Apply mailing label – remember to fill out your contact information.

5. Drop it off at a post office or anywhere that picks up USPS packages. Click to find USPS.

Data Destruction

All devices received by InterConnection go through a thorough data destruction process and all hard drives get either wiped or crushed in compliance with federal and state regulations.

On top of that, InterConnection has a $1,000,000 guarantee that your data is destroyed. However, you can also wipe your hard drive yourself before you mail in your computer.

ACTION is not responsible for your data if you choose to donate a device with your personal information and files still on the device. InterConnection does wipe all technology devices before refurbishing or recycling. Please do not ask to get files or personal data back after donating to InterConnection. Below is one of many options you could choose to use to wipe your laptop drive before donating.

Optional: How to wipe your own laptop drive

Why is ACTION connecting with InterConnection?

InterConnection has a prepaid USPS mailing donation system for anyone in the USA to mail donated devices. ACTION does not.

InterConnection has many people and tools dedicated to refurbishing and, as necessary, recycling technology. ACTION does what it can but not to the large scale that InterConnection can.

InterConnection provides a way to securely refurbish, and as necessary, recycle your old cell phone. Then InterConnection gives ACTION a portion of proceeds from donated cell phones. ACTION is not in a position to collect and refurbish cell phones.

InterConnection is a certified Microsoft Refurbisher which means every laptop ACTION receives from this program comes with the most reliable and current operating system installed. For example, if you donate a laptop with Windows XP, InterConnection gives credit toward a Windows 7 laptop. ACTION could never do that without the cost of buying the newer operating system software every time.

Connecting tech donors to InterConnection to benefit ACTION

InterConnection specializes in charitable computer reuse and all donations of surplus computers, working or not, help us accomplish our mission.
