Governmental Used Computer Donations

CFC receives governmental donations from the State of California, Federal donations, and local governments. We have many great working relationships with government agencies, making the transition as smooth as possible for large volumes of donations. We have experience in assisting in state rollouts.

CFC has Data Destruction services available. Since the state requires that all data be sanitized prior to leaving the facility, CFC can bring our Degausser or new Data Destroyer to your site. We offer a Certification of Destruction, a spreadsheet listing the hard drive by serial number, date, and method of destruction. This can be used for your audit trail as proof of data security. Our portable equipment can even destroy Solid State Drives, flash drives, and memory cards. Take a look at our hardware in our Data Destruction Brochure. Garner PD-5 and Garner HD-3XTL. CFC has performed data destruction services to hospitals, CHP, IRS, Dept. of Health Care Services, Broadcom, Dept. of Education, and many more.

The State of California is sending only 15% of its Surplus for Reuse rather than Recycling. There are 2 million children in California who do not have access to technology at home. There is a better way! Allow Computers for Classrooms to handle your surplus and to provide a low-cost option for schools and families to have a vital tool – technology at home.
