The hard drives are wiped using Darik’s Boot and Nuke (DBAN) for reuse, Then we process them to make accessible, unencumbered open source systems, with the Linux Mint operating system. Where it is not possible to reuse the hard drive (such as being too small or faulty) we physically destroy the platters of the drive.
For a minimal fee these computers are made available to low income groups, individuals and communities.
