Computer Buyback Program Form

What happens to your old devices?

Used computers are audited and includes a visual inspection followed by a diagnostic test to establish a baseline value for the device. 

Hard drives are immediately scrubbed to protect district data and student privacy.

Working units are then refurbished and sold as STS Certified Second-Life Hardware or broken down for parts. 

Remaining components are recycled or donated to local schools for mixed media art projects.

*Final buyback price may be lower or higher depending on the actual condition. If there are units received that are non-functioning or heavily damaged, STS will recycle them for you.
