Founded in 2002 as MacRenewal, a public nonprofit public organization, NextStep Recycling saves used computers from the landfill, refurbishing machines while employing underemployed or unemployed Lane County Oregon residents. Since 1999, NextStep has put more than 18,000 refurbished computer systems back into use in the community and recycled over 6.2 million pounds of electronic waste. More than 5,200 volunteers  have donated their time, gaining training and employment marketability in the process.
