More than 1050 private companies have given us their computers and peripherals since the beginning of the program, many on a regular basis. We are also appointed by provincial and federal ministries to recover obsolete equipment from their on-going IT infrastructure upgrades.
By entrusting your equipment to OPEQ, you will help a school, a library, a non-profit day-care (CPE), or learning center.
In addition to the following positive outcomes:
Protection of your data and identity
Assurance that all your confidential information (logos and organization ID) will be suppressed by wiping out the hard drives via a software up to the standards of the Recycler Qualification Office (RQO) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
For added security, we recommend that you delete the contents of your hard drives before sending them for reuse or recycling. Several tools (free or not) are available to erase properly your hard drives.
