Technology is rapidly changing. Computers, monitors, printers, and other electronics are being replaced every few years. The resulting electronic waste — referred to as e-waste — is the fastest growing toxic waste stream in the United States. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), roughly 2.4 million tons of e-waste are created each year. The EPA’s Electronics Environmental Benefits Calculator finds that it is roughly 25 times more beneficial environmentally to extend the life of electronic devices than to recycle them at three to five years of age.
Mission: Ignite is where retired electronic devices can find new life. Our staff and volunteers work hard to refurbish the electronics we receive. We maintain strict data security standards when processing any data-bearing devices that pass through our facility. By choosing us as your e-cycler, your electronics will be properly disposed of, or given back to the community through our programs.
Since 1997, Mission: Ignite has existed to end the digital divide in Buffalo. Many people lack the resources necessary to purchase a computer or get the technical training needed to use them. At the same time, rapid technology change means that over 2 million tons of hazardous e-waste is created in the U.S each year. Mission: Ignite addresses this by refurbishing technology and providing STEM training to the Buffalo community.
While we consistently aim to provide low-cost, cheap computers to our community, we assure high quality. All computers come with a 90-day warranty and customer support. But don’t take our word for it – check out our reviews!
By purchasing from Mission: Ignite, you also invest back in Buffalo. Nonprofit organizations receive 10% off pricing, and we also offer a bulk discount for orders of 10+ computers. Your purchase directly supports our STEM and AmeriCorps programs, while also curbing electronic waste.
