DONATIONS & RECYCLING

Donations

Alanouwaly Salifou Sylla Foundation

Hither Green IT is committed to reducing electronic waste. Wherever possible, we will always try to repair and/or upgrade in the first instance as opposed to replace.

We also partner with the Alanouwaly Salifou Sylla Foundation, taking donations of computer and electronic equipment to send to the Learning and Information Centre Project in Guinea. All items are checked before sending to ensure that they can definitely be of use and to ensure they don't end up in landfill once they arrive.

USEFUL ITEMS
  • Laptops and desktops from around 2011 onwards (preferably Intel Core i3/i5/i7 or AMD equivalents),
    running Windows 7 or later
  • Monitors
  • Mobile phones
  • Tablets
  • Scanners
  • Working peripherals like keyboards, mice, speakers etc.

  • ITEMS WE CAN'T TAKE (please see the recycling section below)
  • Laptops and desktops from prior to 2011 (usually Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad/Pentium 4) running Windows Vista/XP or earlier
  • Printers (the cost of ink and cartridges is simply too high)
  • If you have any items that are partly broken, or you aren't sure if they might be of use, do get in touch using the contact form below and we can advise what can be salvaged and repaired for donation and what needs to be responsibly recycled. If possible, it's really helpful if you can send model numbers and/or photos so we can assess any potential donations.

    Recycling

    If your items are too old to be useful to Alanouwaly, or are broken beyond repair, we can safely dispose of them according to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) regulations. For a small fee, we can also remove hard drives and return them to you and/or erase any confidential information from devices before disposal.

    It's also possible to take items to be recycled yourself in and around the Hither Green area at the following places:

    Currys PC World     Lewisham Council Small Appliance Banks     Eco Community Libraries
