How does it work?

TechOWL accepts donations of gently-used devices. These are items that the owner no longer needed, but are still in good working condition. All donations are looked over and thoroughly cleaned by our staff. We then give the device to someone in need of it. This saves you money and keeps equipment out of landfills!

You must make an appointment to come pick up the item you want. Devices are not stored at our main office and we can not accommodate walk-ins. Thank you for your understanding.
