- Sudo Room is reviewing its policy on electronics donations, and will be compiling a list of recyclable goods/costs before Wednesday, Dec. 5th. so that we can form a policy around material electronics donations, and other electronics in the space. This is still under advisement until our next meeting where it will be an agenda item, and then there may be temporary action or continued advisement. UPDATE, PLEASE!!
- Tools are ALWAYS welcome
- Laptops, desktops, macs, pcs, etc are almost always welcome because they can be re-purposed easily.
- Raw materials (that aren't too bulky) are almost always welcome: e.g. actual wood, aluminium, steel, wiring, etc.
- Bulky raw materials may be handy on a case-by-case basis.
- Printers are horrible, we can't use them (ink is proprietary and expensive) and they take up too much space.
- Old technology can sometimes be fun, but consider when it should be seen as a relic or as spare parts.
- Depending on the item, User:Matt is willing to facilitate donations of electronic devices, especially ones that can be used for parts, or are in working condition. If there isn't room for your donation, sudoers are likely to make room for re-usable or good stuff.
