HEROES DESERVE HELP

Veterans Non-Profit Collecting E-waste at Arcadia Park

Their mission is to support veterans through veteran organizations and resource centers for job preparation, schooling and specific needs to help with their re-entry into civilian life. They fulfill their mission of training, continuing education and employment through socially responsible donations of technology such as computers, tablets, cell phones, printers, copiers, all-in-one printers, plotters, servers and other E-waste (electronic waste) streams.

All other E-waste is staged by government and corporate entities for them to pick up and transport to their San Dimas warehouse where it is evaluated and sorted for final disposition, reuse and recycling. As a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, they are able to repair these computers at a reduced cost to benefit our donation program. All good used working technology is also available for donation or purchase for home/business use to help the program goals of becoming self-sustaining.
