LOS ANGELES (AP) — At least half of some 8,000 Los Angeles city computers that became obsolete after a system upgrade will be refurbished and donated to nonprofits.

City News Service reports the City Council voted unanimously Thursday to adopt the donation plan proposed by Councilman Bob Blumenfield.

The city no longer needs the computers after upgrading to Windows 7 from the older Windows XP system. The upgrade took place in April.

Officials say any machines that cannot be refurbished will be recycled and not sent to landfills.
