Simplifying IT’s recycling program recycles old computers, phones, flat screen monitors, and printers. This program works in two ways. It provides companies and individuals a safe location to get rid of their old equipment and have their information reliably wiped while also providing jobs for adults with mental or physical disabilities. We work with WCBDD and Ohio Disabilities to provide these adults and young adults with possible future jobs.

Wayne DD adults come into our facility several times a week while another program brings adults in for 20 hours to assess them on their ability to perform types of functions. These assessments are used for recommendations on probable future jobs.

Our Recyclers do the Following

  • Completely tear the computer down to the frame by removing the motherboard, power supply, fans, memory, wires, and hard drive
  • Using a 3-step process, we remove the hard drive and disassemble it, remove the disks inside that hold information, and finally, we subject them to a strong magnet to wipe out all information.
  • We then haul all the separate parts (frame, plastics, aluminum, etc.) to a computer recycling facility in Cleveland, Ohio

In partnership with the Wayne County Board of Developmental Disabilities
