Reuse, Remanufacture, or Recycle Technology Equipment at No Extra Cost to Your Organization
As the first certified nonprofit partner in Cisco’s Takeback and Reuse Program, Telecom4Good makes it easy for nonprofits to return end-of-use gear to Cisco with the Nonprofit IT Equipment Recycling .
The Cisco IT Equipment Recycling Program is easy, convenient, and free. By taking advantage of this program, you can not only positively impact our planet but make a difference within each of your offices and their respective communities.
After your equipment is returned, Cisco takes extra steps to ensure your security. Equipment is stored in a secure location, and data is cleared from reclaimed hard drives to protect data security.
Cisco reuses or recycles 99.9% of what is returned, helping you meet your sustainability goals and ensure responsible equipment disposal. Plus, nonprofits aren’t limited to just Cisco equipment — our team can help you recycle other technology as well.
