Cambria County Conservation District, Pennsylvania, USA

Sustainable, cost-effective solutions for used IT hardware

“Techbuyer’s quote was significantly over the money we had expected to be able to raise. We also received a certificate to prove that the data had been properly erased. We are hoping to open up a similar program to the public in 2021.”

Protect the environment by contributing to the Circular Economy


Cambria County Conservation District supports and educates the constituents of Cambria County in Pennsylvania on matters related to the protection of the environment and quality of life. They work with local organizations like ‘Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’ to arrange trash collection events eight times a year.

The aim of these events is to collect waste that is difficult to dispose of, from tires to kitchen appliances, to reduce dumping which can have a detrimental effect on the local waterways and soil. They are actively involved with business and farming operations to advise best management practices, prevent activities that can be harmful to the environment, and create plans to help keep sustainable resources.

The district reviews construction permits and inspects local development to ensure that controls are in place to prevent soil erosion and storm water run-off. Staff obtain grants and design projects that restore and stabilize streambanks to reduce erosion and sedimentation and enhance wildlife habitat in the local waterways. Alongside this, they also conduct in-house and community educational programs to build awareness on the best practises to protect and preserve natural resources.

The Challenge

The Conservation District needed to raise funds for an upcoming education showcase for the area. When a planned recycling drive with the local area fell through, they also needed an alternative, ethical solution for the IT equipment that the organization no longer used. The solution needed to ensure that all data was destroyed while at the same time providing the best return on the hardware.

Techbuyer's Solution

A colleague from ‘West Penn Metals Recycling’ recommended Techbuyer’s ‘Sell To Us’ service. Techbuyer offered a great price for the PCs and servers, securely data erased any data-bearing IT devices, and provided full sanitization certificates for reassurance that the data had been entirely erased. The collaboration meant the district was able to dispose of redundant equipment in the most responsible way, and they received a payment that was significantly above the one they had hoped for. The collaboration also raised the district’s awareness on the benefits of buying from the secondary market.  The organization is now considering refurbished IT equipment for their future purchasing needs.
