Recycle and renew for Winthrop Primary School

By | Apple, Case Study, Latest News | No Comments

Katy De Caprio and Annemarie Dembo are the dynamic duo that look after ICT and resources at Winthrop Primary School.

Ethical Device Sanitisation & Disposal

Winthrop Primary School had 60 old devices, a mix of iPads and MacBook Pros, that needed to be wiped and disposed of so Katy and Annemarie had started exploring options for their disposal.

The school had an obligation to sanitise the machines prior to any disposal and also wanted to ensure that they were disposed of ethically, so Annemarie gained a number of quotes from recycling companies.

“The timing was perfect.” recalls Katy, “At a regular visit, I was talking to John about our intent to wipe and dispose of our devices and it was then that we learned about the Solutions IT Buyback program”.

Technology Buyback Program

Solutions IT’s Buyback program is a fast, simple and effective trade-in solution for old devices. Quite simply, old devices are traded in for cash. The program offers competitive market leading valuations and complete data integrity which includes a sanitation certificate.

“John did pretty much everything.” laughs Katy, “It was super easy; we gave him the list of devices with serial numbers that we simply had copied from our inventories. He came back a few days later with a price. As per our school protocol, we went to two other companies for a comparison but Solutions IT’s offer was by far the most competitive, so we accepted it.”

The pick-up process is easy and completely free, “We were given simple instructions on how to pack up the devices. Luckily, we didn’t need to clean off any sticky residue from our labels as that would have taken someone a day to clean at least. Another saving.”

“When John advised that the goods had been received and checked by the data destruction company we raised an invoice to Solutions IT. Soon after, we rece ived the funds along with a data destruction sanitisation certificate. The whole process took about 3 weeks.”

Saved Dollars & Gained Dollars

“We were delighted!” says Annemarie, “We avoided paying hundreds of dollars to a company to wipe and dispose of our old machines, and on top of that we ended up receiving enough money to fund six additional iPads! Win, win, win!”
