October 2012 was Capstone’s 1st annual Green IT month, and as a service to the community, Capstone offered FREE pickup and SECURE disposal of unwanted office computers and other electronics. Over 20 businesses throughout the Rochester area took part in this city-wide effort to reduce, recycle, and reuse their old technical devices. Near $1,000 was raised through monetary donations during these events to support a local organization, The Center For Youth.
“We think that the Center For Youth provides invaluable services to our community, so as a fundraiser for them and as a service to Rochester businesses, we offered free pickup and secure disposal of all the unwanted electronics laying around in offices throughout the Greater Rochester area. It’s an important responsibility that all business owners should take part in.” says Sitima Fowler, CEO of Capstone Information Technologies. “Your computer is made with a wide variety of components, many of which are toxic. When old computers are disposed of improperly, these substances can enter the environment; causing pollution and associated plant and animal death, along with birth defects. Rochester businesses are only one phone call away from making sure this doesn’t happen with their old devices.”
If your business has old computers collecting dust and taking up space, call 585-546-4120 to find out how you can schedule a pick up for your business.
