Newstead Technologies (“Newstead”) is currently running the Gift Your Tech campaign from December 5, 2016 to January 27, 2017 to help its charity TOUCH Community Services (TOUCH). Through this campaign, anyone that wishes to trade-in their old electronics item could bring them down to any of the 12 Newstead’s stores to exchange for vouchers that could be used in the participating stores. On top of that, Newstead will donate 20% of the trade-in value of old electronic items brought in to TOUCH.
Through Gift Your Tech, Newstead Technologies aims to encourage e-recycling and proper disposal of e-waste. PC Dreams, Newstead Technologies’ partner for the campaign will cleanse all collected devices of data securely. For end-of-life electronic items that are not eligible for trade-in, Newstead Technologies will recycle them through an e-waste recycling company.
Newstead Technologies will organise a Gift Your Tech event on December 28, 2016 at Marina Square. To highlight the importance of personal data security, Newstead will organise an educational live demonstration together with PC Dreams to show how erased data can be easily retrieved. Consumers will also be able to trade-in their devices or e-recycle during the event.
