Last year Microsoft Ireland launched a programme designed to encourage companies to donate end-of-life PCs to Irish refurbishers who will service and update the machines, install a fresh copy of Microsoft Windows and channel those machines to schools and charities.
The programme has the dual benefits of reducing the volume of PCs being sent to landfill while making a real difference to schools and charities across the country.
Some of the refurbishers such as Rehab Recycle provide a range of additional services such as reports on what you've donated which is valuable in terms of measuring your environmental impact.
Unlike other countries, there is currently a shortage of PCs being donated in Ireland so we're asking every Irish company to think about participating in the MAR programme.
