    A Detailed Audit Process

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

    E-waste Recycling with Zero Landfill Policy

    Our commitment to sustainability drives every aspect of our e-waste initiative. While our primary goal is to repurpose and refurbish old IT equipment, we understand that some devices reach the end of their usable life. In such cases, we adhere to a zero landfill policy by responsibly separating components into plastics and rare precious earths. Leveraging innovative IP developed by the UNSW Smartlab, we transform these materials into feedstock for manufacturing industry-grade parts locally.

    Guaranteed Data Destruction

    Your data security is our top priority. We provide comprehensive data destruction services with a guarantee. Upon disposal of your hardware, you receive data destruction certificates, ensuring peace of mind that all school and student data is securely erased. Trust us to safeguard your sensitive information throughout the disposal process.

    Community Sales

    Winthrop offers a Community Sales program for K-12 schools and districts looking to provide members of their community an opportunity to purchase used devices that are being traded-in.

    Here’s how it works:


    When your school or district sells or trades-in their old Apple or Chrome devices to Tech to School we’ll set aside a certain number of devices to be sold exclusively to members (parents, teachers, students, etc.) of your community.


    Once your devices are shipped to Tech to School, we’ll wipe, audit, clean and prep the devices for your community sale.


    We’ll provide a special link on our site that you can share with members of your community for them to purchase the devices. We’ll handle the payment, shipping, etc.
