Computer Mentors Group accepts computer equipment donations from the public. All donated equipment will be redistributed or re-cycled back into the community. CMG takes privacy seriously in regards to information that is contained on donated equipment. Per our agreement with Microsoft Corporation, all systems will have their hard drives reformatted and new operating systems will be installed leaving virtually no trace of the previous owner and previous files. For those needing more rigorous data protection, certified data erasure is possible through our recycling partner.
