The annual Gateway Los Angeles e-waste and unwanted technology drive is just around the corner. Rather than using a recycler, this year Gateway is looking to set an example by partnering with human-I-T to repurpose your items.

human-I-T is a L.A. based nonprofit that takes in all types of unwanted technology, wipes all data, refurbishes items, and repurposes them out to help low-income families, veterans, people with disabilities, and other nonprofits. Your unwanted technology is turned into opportunities for others to better themselves and their families.Rather than holding a single event, human-I-T has agreed to serve our members and their clients on an as-needed basis.

When you are in need of a pickup, simply submit a Pickup Request at and qualifying items can be picked up at no cost. Simply check with human-I-T to see if your donation is eligible for free pick-up (most are), and human-I-T will perform free data wiping, and provide you with itemized, tax-deductible receipts just in time for tax season.

Look out for an email from human-I-T where they will offer to help you run a successful technology collection during the start of new year.
