A charity based in west Belfast has its fingers on the button when it comes to old computers.
Computer graveyard... don't they deserve a new life?
Camara is appealing to people who have bought a new computer not to simply scrap their old model.
As long as it is in good condition, a new home can be found for old computers in an African school.
Over the next 10 years, experts estimate that people in Ireland will throw out four million computers.
Camara intends to refurbish the best computers for affordable computer laboratories in African schools.
"Irish technology can be used as a powerful tool to help children and teachers in Africa build a better life for themselves," said Cormac Lynch, chief executive of Camara.
"We are asking people to dig out their computers from under the stairs or from the attic and bring it down to a Camara drop-off centre."
The first drop-off day was held on Saturday in Belfast and Dublin.
But Camara intends to have more days at venues across Ireland so that individuals and businesses can drop off their old PCs.
Computers must be in good condition. More details can be found by telephoning the charity at 02890 242362 or using the website: www.camara.ie.
