Unfortunately, we have to post about an update to the donation fees.
Ideally, Free Geek could process CRTs (Cathode Ray Tubes) and printers for free. Due to changes in commodity prices we will be charging to accept these donations. We want to be open about these costs and why we are stuck charging them. To a certain amount, we keep working printers available to be reused, but due to storage and volunteer-power constraints, we end up recycling printers too.
We are already seeing costs of $300 per transaction with our recyclers to handle printers and CRTs.
The fees for CRTs are :
And for Printers :
We feel this represents the ‘at cost’ by the pound rate we receive from our recyclers and will adjust these rates when we can to keep the costs to donators down.
We’re happy to be moving forward with a new look at freegeektwincities.org. Over the years we have accumulated a fair number of pages, which we will also be updating!
Some things to watch for in the coming weeks:
