Buyback program

Environmentally Friendly & Economically Responsible

Your school’s current computers have value. So use it, don’t lose it.

Asset Value Recovery

It’s up to you. When replacing your computers you have to decide what to do with the old devices. The way we see it, you have three choices.

What happens to your old devices?

Used computers are audited and includes a visual inspection followed by a diagnostic test to establish a baseline value for the device. 

Hard drives are immediately scrubbed to protect district data and student privacy.

Working units are then refurbished and sold as STS Certified Second-Life Hardware or broken down for parts. 

Remaining components are recycled or donated to local schools for mixed media art projects.

 

*Final buyback price may be lower or higher depending on the actual condition. If there are units received that are non-functioning or heavily damaged, STS will recycle them for you.

Selling your computers to STS is as simple as 1,2,3. 

  1. Submit a valuation request with the device brand, model, specs, number of units, and condition and receive a preliminary quote.  
  2. Send the devices to our facility for an audit.
  3. Receive a check or credit for a future purchase.
