Not-for-profit groups get crack at old computers, printers, cell phones

Annapolis County is auctioning off old computers, laptops, cell phones, and printers to not-for-profit groups.

If you belong to a not-for-profit group looking for computers and office equipment, Annapolis County has an auction designed just for you.

After accumulating an inventory of computer equipment that has been deemed surplus and was scheduled for disposal, the municipality decided to use this as an opportunity to offer some assistance to local community groups. On Saturday, Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., all registered not-for-profit organizations are welcome to attend a silent auction being held at the United Baptist Church, 762 St. George St., Annapolis Royal. This will allow local not-for-profit organizations the opportunity to acquire equipment they feel may be useful to their organization at an affordable cost.

“This felt like this was a win-win for everyone. We get to clear out our storage room while helping our non-profit organizations at the same time,” said Economic Development and IT Services Manager Cody Joudry. “However, it is important to note, some of these items are in disrepair. And, items such as laptops and desktops won’t have hard drives in them and they’re not included in the purchase. They have all been removed for security purposes. All buyers should be aware of this before buying any items.”

Inspection of items can take place as per the schedule shown below. The auction will be set-up like a Silent Auction and will run by this schedule:

-- 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Viewing of items

-- 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Bidding takes place

-- 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Pay and pick up of items

-- 1 p.m. Auction closed

All items remaining after 1:00 p.m., whether they were bid on or not, will be disposed of.

“We are asking those interested in participating in the silent auction and the people representing a registered not-for-profit organization to please pre-register,” said Joudry.

People can register by contacting Nancy Chisholm, Economic Development Assistant at (902) 526-3947. Each person will be asked to provide the name of the registered not-for-profit organization and the person(s) attending the auction and purchasing the items on behalf of the organization.

Only cash, debit, or cheque will be accepted and payment must be made on the day of the auction. Please be reminded, all items remaining at the end of the day will be disposed of. All buyers must acknowledge the items are “as is, where is” and no warranty is given or implied, nor will items be delivered or held past the 1 p.m. pick up deadline.
