Sycamore International turns unwanted computers into valuable assets

Posted to Announcement by Mr. Ken Indictor of Sycamore International at 11:12 AM

By John Chambless
Staff Writer, Chester County Press
2/19/2016

Tucked away in West Grove is a long, nondescript building where yesterday's must-have gadget either meets its demise, or is reborn for more years of service.

At Sycamore International, small mountains of outdated computers, laptops and iPads arrive nearly every day. For company director Steve Figgatt, it's a reminder of how “people are scrapping really great computers,” but it's also an opportunity to put technology into the hands of students who might otherwise not have it. And there's the comfort of knowing that, last year, 1.8 million pounds of electronics did not end up being dumped into landfills because it was handled through Sycamore.
