HOW IT WORKS
HOW IT WORKS

SALVAGING & RECYCLING
Salvaged for valuable parts
Our industrial recycling partners collect the scrap.
97% scrap is reused
FREE GEEK has accepted the donation of over 40,000 used computers since Nov. 2000.
Volunteers earn their computer system and an introductory class. Members who “graduate” from the member program can become eligible to take the FREEK BOX build class…learning how to build their computers from used parts.

SOON TO TEACH:
My initial reception was questionable because there were a flood of volunteers at that time.
You tour the site
Sign up for your first work day.
Report for work-I logged in Gizmos. I learned a lot about the different components.
You punch in and out to keep track of your hours.
You can only schedule one work session at a time.
My third work day was in recycling. This can be therapeutic or very physical. You learn how to take the components apart. I did not enjoy this as much.
