The Name You Can Trust in Computer Repair in East Texas!





The Affordable Technology Initiative


In 2010 in the United States, approximately 142,000 computers were disposed of every day* (certainly more today) while today, an estimated 26% of people in the U.S. do not have access to a home computer.**

At Applied Technology Solutions, we started The ATI (Affordable Technology Initiative) to accomplish a two-fold purpose:

1. To rescue refurbishable computers from our counties landfills, and 

2. Be able to provide affordable technology resources within our realm of service.


We prefer to promote reuse over recycling!  Reusing expired computers extends the lifecycle of these electronics and is a more environmentally friendly approach to these issues.  It reduces waste, manufacturing costs, requires less energy and provides affordable options for those financially challenged to acquire a quality and dependable computer.

ATI is an electronics refurbisher and recycler, committed to extending the life of your retired electronic devices, when at all possible. We maintain the highest standards in electronics recycling and data security, ensuring any confidential data that was ever on your device is never compromised.  By choosing to recycle with The ATI, you can feel good about helping us create a sustainable future for our community in need and our planet.

Our Mission:

At The ATI, we strive to protect businesses, families and individuals from the threat of improperly disposed electronic devices through technology data management, computer recovery and recycling services.  We hope to reduce the footprint of electronic waste in our landfills while providing affordable computer purchase options for those who are struggling financially in our community.
