EPA replaces computers for schools and community groups
The EPA estimates that it has given away around 630 computers including monitors and printers since becoming involved in a program aimed at helping South Australian schools and community groups.
EPA Director Strategy and Business Roslyn Agate said CRS has elevated South Australia to the nation’s leader in ICT e-waste management.
“This program has provided thousands of PCs from government departments including the EPA,” she said.
“It means that schools and community groups receive much-needed equipment and by extending the life of these computers, we are reducing waste going to landfill.”
CRS also runs the Special Needs Initiative that provides ICT equipment to children on a Negotiated Education Plan (NEP) in special needs schools and classes and to children in state care.
