A new initiative to recycle computers for schools was launched last week.
Free Computers for Education is a government-backed scheme aim ing to ensure schoolchildren have access to technology.
Instead of throwing away old PCs, companies are being encouraged to donate them to the scheme, which will arrange for the collection and refurbishment of the machines, and their delivery to schools.
The initial target of the scheme is to have at least 15 computers in at least one pilot school in each Local Education Authority in the UK by the end of the year 2000.
PCs to be donated to the scheme should be in good working order and have a minimum specification of a 486 chip, keyboard and monitor with all connecting cabling.
Companies interested in participating in the scheme should phone 0800 0526179.
