Community Buyback


Keeping your investment in the community.

Community Buyback closes the connectivity gap in the communities of partner school corporations by offering the community members used devices at a discounted retail rate. Thanks to CBB, schools recycle their retired devices and build their technology budgets while resources stay in the community.
