StRUT (Students Recycling Used Technology) are three separate organizations in three states with similar roots and similar mission of providing technology education, resources, and recycling to schools and non-profit organizations in or near these states. It was founded in Oregon in 1995 by Intel and the Northwest Regional Education Service District. Through StRUT, companies such as Epson, Fujitsu, Nike, and Tektronix donate used computers and equipment to schools for refurbishing and reuse. As of August 2003, StRUT has provided computers to over 135 schools and 21 educational service districts in Oregon and southwest Washington. The program has also grown to several other states, as well as inspired similar recycling programs elsewhere. In Arizona Intel, Motorola & APS have much to do with AzStrut's early growth.
The Oregon StRUT program has placed over 22,000 computers in schools, involving 3,600 students in the process. From 2001 to August 2003, over 650 tons of material has been recycled.
