HOW IT WORKS:

Heartwood House collects donations of computer equipment from the community. Items are inspected for usability, returned to service whenever possible or recycled in an environmentally friendly manner.

The compensation to Heartwood is used in support of the vital work of our community of charitable organizations. The Ottawa community wins by ensuring that these items - some of which are harmful to the environment - do not end up in the landfill.


Heartwood House is grateful to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for its support of the Everybody Wins! Electronics Recycling Program.
