Computer Recovery

The Computer Recovery Program was established in 1999 and is codified in Texas Government Code § 497.012, and receives data processing equipment under Texas Government Code §§ 2175.125 and 2175.128. The program allows state agencies and political subdivisions to send surplus or salvage data processing equipment to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) to be refurbished or recycled. Refurbished equipment is then made available to school districts, state agencies or political subdivisions, in that relative order of preference.


Texas Correctional Industries (TCI) is the department within TDCJ that operates the computer recovery facilities located in Snyder at the Daniel Unit and in Huntsville at the Wynne Unit. The computer recovery program is beneficial to all associated parties: (1) Texas school children are provided access to technology, which is required by state and national technology plans; (2) state agencies and political subdivisions are provided a better, easier method to recycle data processing equipment; and (3) eligible offenders receive training and hands on experience to increase their chance of gainful employment in the technology field upon release.
