Strathcona County donates computer assets to local schools and neighbours

Strathcona County annually donates computers, devices and other electronic equipment from its evergreen cycle program to schools and community support initiatives.

In the past year, over 200 computers and connection devices have been donated to schools in the county.

The County also answered a call for computer donations that saw 30 computers donated to the C5 North East Community Hub in Edmonton that includes: Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, Terra Centre for Teen Parents, Norwood Child and Parent Link Centre, Boyle Street Community Services, Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Society, and SAGE Seniors Association.  

As the County’s Information and Technology Services (ITS) conducts its annual hardware refresh, under the County’s Disposal of Assets policy, older equipment is repurposed to schools and community groups. Organizations receive reliably configured computers, and additional equipment such as components, keyboards and mice.

Most other ITS disposal of assets is through a contract with an electronic recycler based in Alberta that collects and recycles computers at no charge, and is managed by the Alberta Recycling Management Authority.


Set in the centre of Alberta’s energy and agricultural heartland, Strathcona County is a thriving, successful and vibrant community of over 98,000 residents. Strathcona County is made up of the urban area of Sherwood Park and a large adjacent rural area of farms, acreages and smaller hamlets. It is home to 75 per cent of hydrocarbon processing in Western Canada. Strathcona County is a leader in environmental conservation, and 55 per cent of its land is within the UNESCO Beaver Hills Biosphere. With a focus on economic, governance, social, cultural and environmental sustainability, Strathcona County is committed to balancing the unique needs of its diverse community.
