Corporate Equipment Services

Kramden Institute collects computer equipment and e-waste from numerous corporate and public sector clients. For larger asset collections, Kramden offers:

  • Free equipment pickup
  • Data sanitization and destruction
  • R2 certified downstream recycling
  • Call back within 1 business day

Computer equipment that can be refurbished or reused will be diverted to one of our many digital inclusion programs, while all remaining e-waste is responsibly recycled by one of our R2 certified recycling partners.

By choosing Kramden Institute as your IT recycler, you will not only be helping thousands to cross the digital divide with the use of refurbished computer equipment, but minimizing your environmental footprint and making a positive social impact in the communities you serve.

  • Free Asset Pickup

    Kramden Institute offers free pickups for technology donations that qualify (typically a minimum of 20 desktops or laptops). Kramden staff will coordinate pick-up time(s) and location(s) to physically remove the equipment and provide an Equipment Donation Receipt that will transfer ownership of the equipment and all data liability to Kramden Institute. Once the assets have been loaded, they are then taken directly to Kramden Institute’s secure warehouse. Please call 919-293-1133  to talk to a representative or email us at if you have any questions or would like to schedule a pickup.

  • Free Data Sanitization

    Kramden Institute is committed to data sanitization and destruction of your confidential information. Kramden physically removes every hard drive from equipment that enters our warehouse which are then brought into our employee-access only Data Sanitization Area, which is under continuous monitoring by a closed circuit television system and  a monitored alarm system. All hard drives are then wiped of their data by a 3-pass software wipe (learn more here). If a hard drive fails the data removal step, it will be taken to a locked storage container until delivered to our e-waste recycler where it will be physically shredded. Certificates of Destruction are given upon request.

  • Tax Deductible Contribution

    Kramden is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donating entities are eligible to receive a tax deduction for property donated under applicable rules and regulations of the IRS. The charitable deduction for contributions of technology equals the fair market value (retail used value in the current market place) of the donated property.
