This summer, we took the first step in this collaboration by donating three cages filled with hardware. These devices will be recycled or upgraded, all in an effort to bridge the ‘digital divide.’
By choosing to recycle our IT equipment through Community Computers, we are supporting their mission of providing equipment as well as employment, work skills, and training to long-term unemployed individuals.
We believe in their cause, and together, we are taking steps to tackle digital exclusion and make low-cost computers available to the community.

Tony Wyatt, Morson Projects’ IT Manager shared:
“As soon as we met up with Community Computers and began to understand what they did, it was clear to see how Morson Projects could get involved and donate our old hardware to them.
“It’s fantastic to know that the IT equipment we donate is given a second life, providing low-cost computers to the community, whilst also reducing the amount of e-waste going to landfill and ensuring all hazardous materials are disposed of properly.
“For us, this is just the start, our first collection was a huge success in the summer and Community Computers are visiting again later this month to take a second collection as we roll this initiative out across the rest of the Morson Group.”
We’re excited to be a part of this meaningful partnership and look forward to making a positive impact on the lives of those in our community, working together to create a more inclusive and digitally connected world!
