WITS recycles and refurbishes electronics, computers and surplus equipment from local or national businesses and residents by fixing or replacing what may be broken and putting it back into the community for educational use. This keeps the used equipment out of the landfills and provides those in need with the technology to accomplish their educational or career goals. WITS also offers training in many areas for students of all ages and capabilities for internships and resume experiences and the chance to teach their skills to other students with hands-on experiences.

Anything that WITS cannot reuse is recycled appropriately at our recycling facility. WITS has a 0% landfill policy which has been followed since they began recycling in 2002.
