Microsoft launches PC-rebuilding scheme

Microsoft Ireland has launched a scheme aimed at keeping PCs out of landfills and re-building them for use by schools and charities. The Microsoft Authorised Refurbisher (MAR) programme, which was officially launched at the Rehab Recycle facility in Tallaght on Thursday, provides companies with a means of disposing of unused or end-of-life computer equipment which can then be serviced, re-conditioned, and installed with new software.

These computers can then be donated to local non-profit organisations or educational institutions that might not otherwise be able to afford such technology.
