Computerbank Victoria is committed to the environmentally friendly recycling of e-waste however due to logistical reasons we are unfortunately unable to accept all donations, please see below for more details.
Personal / Single Donations
Laptop sales are increasingly more popular and demand for Desktop computers is falling. Computerbank is pleased to accept donations of all brands of clean (not damaged) laptops and tablets suitable for refurbishment and reuse, however we are unable to accept:
