Repurposing Education TechnologyClassform
We help schools put more money back into their budget by buying back and repurposing surplus iPads and Chromebooks. Our mission is to limit environmental impact and help advance education technology.
The amount of e-waste produced annually is 74 million tons. That’s up 30% from 2014. Most of these products are not being recycled and end up in illegal dumps in third world countries.
Most companies ship their devices to wholesale buyers, having no idea where they end up. Unfortunately, some end up overseas, parted out, with the scraps left in rivers and landfills.
We buyback and repurpose each device through our national retail partners. This ensures every school receives the top market value and their surplus devices are given a second life.
Request a proposal and see just how much money your school can put back into its budget.
Our Mission & Vision
We believe that the time is now to reduce education e-waste through repurposing. By implementing our mission across education, we will not only eliminate e-waste but also expand the access people have to lower-cost, high-quality technology. We hope to create a sustainable environment while ensuring that no one is left behind due to the cost of a new device.
From Our Founders
” We’ve always been champions of education, that’s why we started Classform. We want to do our part in helping schools spark creativity in the classroom while putting positive practices in place, that guarantee a promising future for the next generation.”

Just How Many Devices Are In Education?
Here are answers to some of our most popular questions
Our mission is repurpose the technology no longer being used in schools. We manage the entire life-cycle of each repurposed device, from working with the school, to placing it with a new owner through our national retail partners. We ensure devices are repurposed locally and not sent to landfills overseas.
Repurpose vs. Recycle?
By repurposing a device, schools can feel good about where their devices are going, and receive a significant amount of money back. We will also plant one tree for every iPad or Chromebook through our partnership with onetreeplanted.org
Do we receive money?
Yes! We pay a fair market value for each working device. Our Repurpose Proposal will provide you with the value of each device, along with the amount of e-waste you are eliminating.
What about data security?
This is the most important question that we receive. Over 30% of the devices that we receive from schools have student or faculty data on them. We ensure all sensitive student data is completely and properly removed from every single iPad or Chromebook that we receive.
