About Us

The Technology Recycling Program (TRP) also known as the Computers for Schools - Nova Scotia Program, started in January of 1994. TRP is a unique public/private partnership between NovaKnowledge, Aliant Pioneer Volunteers, Nova Scotia Department of Education and Industry Canada.

What is Technology Recycling?

Government, individuals and business often have computers that no longer meet their needs. Most of this surplus equipment can be refurbished and re-used in Nova Scotia's education system instead of ending up in a landfill.

Program Mandate

The program mandate is to refurbish used, but still useable, computer equipment for distribution to schools, libraries and qualified educational organizations across Nova Scotia. Over 3,000 computers are distributed this way each year.

Who does the Refurbishing?

Refurbishing and preparation of the used equipment cannot be done without people. TRP provides Nova Scotia IT students between the ages of 18-30 with valuable work experience through the Technology Work Experience Program (TWEP). Each year TRP employs more than 20 TWEP trainees for that valuable first-work experience.

The refurbishing takes place in workshops located throughout Nova Scotia in Halifax, Sackville, Truro, Syndey and Middleton.
