Companies can support Camara through offering other IT hardware apart from computers for recycling. Camara was delighted to be able to handle the disposal of 100 retired printers for PepsiCo Ireland in June. Camara does not ship refurbished printers to Africa because of the unaffordability of the replacement ink cartridges. However, Camara offers a full IT hardware recycling and reuse service to all Irish employers that is also commercially competitive and meets the environmental standards set out in the WEEE directive As a result of the recycling of PepsiCo Ireland’s printers this generated funds to ship 70 computers to Ethiopia in July.
To date Camara have sent 18,500 computers to African schools. Camara looks forward to shipping reused computers from PepsiCo Ireland in the coming months and so helping to break the cycle of poverty for some of the world’s poorest children.
