Issaquah, WA – Beginning today, CleanScapes is accepting unwanted computers and electronics for charitable donation at CleanScapes’ “Rethinking Stuff” store and customer service center in Issaquah’s Gilman Village. In a new partnership, all items will be delivered to InterConnection where hard drives are erased using U.S. Department of Defense protocol. Reusable computers are refurbished and will benefit non-profit organizations and low-income families while unusable computers are recycled.
(Issaquah, WA - September 21, 2012) Today, CleanScapes cut the ribbon on the first ever garbage and recycling store in Issaquah’s Gilman Village. The Issaquah retail store and customer service center provides face-to-face customer service and offers creative products and gifts to reduce waste, recycle and reuse up-cycled materials.
“CleanScapes is pleased to be offering this innovative approach to retail and customer service to provide a better experience for the Issaquah community,” said CleanScapes founder and President Chris Martin.
