Low Cost Computers

Computerbank has run out of space. Please don’t bring items to recycle until at least 20th November. We are busy processing the equipment we already have.

Computerbank is a self funded not for profit, volunteer run, community group based in West Melbourne. Without volunteers and donations our work is not possible.

Computerbank computers are available from $30. Computers are installed with Ubuntu Linux and come with cords, a keyboard, a mouse, LCD screen and a user guide. Basic training is available on request and subject to availability.

We refurbish donated computers and laptops. These low cost computers are for reuse by low income individuals, students and community groups. To help cover our operating costs, excess desktop and LCD stock is sold at higher prices to people who do not have a concession card.

Computer Recycling:  equipment unable to be reused is recycled. Computerbank recycles all e-waste locally and with care for the environment. All hard drives are wiped (using DBAN) or destroyed if they no longer work. Our work is carried out by volunteers and a small team of casual staff.
