Used Computer Store
The Squamish Hotspot houses a small computer recycling program and used computer store The program is run by volunteers at the Hotspot. We take donations of used technology, evaluate & refurbish it for sale in our store! We try to keep our sale prices low so that those in need of a computer can afford them. For Computers, we wipe hard drives to ensure donor privacy before refurbishing. The system is cleaned, tested for basic functionality and then Linux Mint is installed before it is put out for sale.
Drop-in computer technical support is available on a limited and by-donation basis on most Tuesdays & Thursdays.
(Note: Due to space limitations and a lack of volunteers
the computer store & recycling program
are currently running on a very limited basis.
We are accepting very few donations at present.)
