Episode: 228 Free Geek — Reviving Computers, Empowering People


Preview is only available to registered and logged in users.

Episode Description:

Take a whirlwind tour of Free Geek, powered almost entirely by volunteers. Free Geek keeps electronic stuff out of the landfill while refurbishing computers. “Volunteer for 24 hours, and you get a free computer, a class on how to use it, and a year of free tech support,” says Reuse Coordinator Alison Briggs. Her tour starts with volunteers receiving used equipment donations at the front door. After initial testing, stuff gets deconstructed. Recyclable materials are separated out. Computers are refurbished in a Build Room — even laptops. Finished computers go to volunteers, non-profits, and Free Geek’s thrift shop. They’re living up to their byline: “connecting our community one computer at a time.”
