About Yard

The CACRC is a nonprofit organization committed to both e-scrap reduction by decreasing the stream to landfills and to providing refurbished computers and equipment to schools, nonprofits, and low income families. The organization accomplishes this by electronic refurbishment and recycling-including collection, sorting, dismantling, refurbishing, data wiping , sales, and donations.


The CACRC refurbishes the working equipment that comes into our various programs and recycles the rest using qualified vendors in the country under our R2 RIOS certification. The CACRC is one of the first non profits in the country to become R2 RIOS certified, and was incorporated as a non-profit in 1997. Located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the CACRC and operates a 35,000 square foot facility. In addition to operating as a drop-off site for the local community, the CACRC also picks up electronic materials throughout the Gulf Coast Region and hosts community e-recycling events. The CACRC reuses and recycles over 1,500 tons of electronic discards annually from government agencies, businesses, and individuals. As a licensed Microsoft Registered Refurbisher (MRR), the CACRC manages community programs (Computers for Louisiana’s Families) selling at a discount to Seniors, Veterans, other non-profits, schools, and low income families. These computers are loaded with the latest software and carry a one year warranty. Additionally, under the MRR agreement, CACRC spearheaded a national hurricane relief effort following Hurricane Katrina and donated over 3,500 computers. Since 2009, CACRC has received the annual DEQ Environmental Leadership Award.


As an e-scrap refurbisher and recycler, the CACRC is dedicated to the safe management and environmentally-conscious recycling of e-scrap. It is our mission to push for accreditation at the highest standards, and we have accomplished and maintained this with an annual certification of international standards set by the Responsible Recycling(R2) Practices program.R2 is one of only two accredited certification standards that exist for electronics recyclers, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In implementing this rigorous materials management strategy, the CACRC is the only non-profit R2 certified recycler in Louisiana.

This certification was achieved following nine months of adherance to industry standards set by the R2 program, which included:

  • Prevention of pollution and emphasis on worker safety
  • Data security safeguards
  • Responsible management of potentially toxic material
  • Reuse of working electronics
