The council is piloting an exciting new project with a local charity “TechResort” to recycle old devices.
Working with Citizens Advice these will be given to residents in Wealden who need but cannot afford a device.
Do you or your business have an old laptop, tablet, or mobile phone that you no longer need or use?
Does a friend or family member?
If so, please consider donating it.
You can hand the devices into the council offices at Hailsham or Wealden Citizens Advice in Hailsham, Uckfield and Crowborough.
Please reset them back to manufacturer settings. If the product is an Apple product, please also remove the device from an iCloud account. If you can’t reset them, TechResort can do it for you, if you remove any pin codes/passwords/recognition security. Don’t forget to also include the charger if you have it.
Devices will be repaired, and extra storage will be added if necessary, or any other works will be carried out before it goes to its new home. Any devices which cannot be repaired are disposed of to a licensed WEEE secure disposal company.
