eReuse

Help reduce e-waste whilst closing the digital divide!

eReuse is a new Arc program that takes the unwanted computers of UNSW faculties, students and staff, refurbishes them and donates them to charitable organisations to distribute them to those in need!

How we're helping out

We have created a reuse system that reduces e-waste and helps close the digital divide in our communities. Whether you love tinkering with computers or are passionate about sustainability and reducing e-waste, you can give us a helping hand by joining us in refurbishing computers or by donating your old computers and computer accessories.

eReuse also welcomes external donations (especially laptops!), and love to receive emails from people and companies interested in reusing and recycling computers! Fill in our donation form for any donation requests and to arrange delivery. If you have further questions or queries, please get in touch by emailing us

eReuse will have opportunities to develop or further refine computer refurbishment skills through hands on experience, gain team work skills and build connections with like-minded students. Previous experience with computers or computer refurbishment is not necessary!  We will happily teach you everything you need to know. 

Volunteers are expected to be available from 5-8pm on Monday nights during session.

Meet your 2017 eReuse Coordinator!

Hi my name is Emma and I'm the eReuse program Coordinator! I'm currently in my final year of International Business/Chinese studies. On the weekend you'll either find me at the beach or at brunch, tearing through a ripper smashed avo.

I have a passion for sustainability and love learning about how we can reuse and recycle products instead of chucking them out. I want to share how we can more sustainably manage ewaste and help the community at the same time. If you believe you can help or be helped by this program just shoot me an email.
