Any business or undertaking can always use some extra income. The federal government’s Digital Education Revolution programme, for example, aims to provide schools with updated computers on a 1:1 computer to student ratio. This means that a substantial number of PCs would need to be junked annually in keeping with the program’s objectives.
Lack of funding, however, has caused some hitches in the program, preventing some schools (particularly in Victoria) to replace soon-to-be obsoleted models with new ones. Exchanging computer scrap for cash, with the help of companies like Global Resources, may provide some of the answers to financial dilemmas like this.
