1. We have no practical effective way of "collecting" ozone from computers to transport to the stratosphere. Ozone is a highly reactive molecule that, when adjacent to another ozone molecule is going to form 3 O2 molecules. Therefore by the time we got our collection of ozone molecules transported to the stratosphere, they would probably all be O2 molecules and no use to fixing the problem. 2. It would cost a lot of money to develop a technology that would transport ozone to the stratosphere, and no one has committed the time or money to developing that technology. 3. The ozone depletion is caused by Chlorine molecules that have migrated to the stratosphere from the troposphere, and can continue to deplete ozone more than once, so to solve the problem it is necessary to get rid of the Chlorine molecules (and the sulfur dioxide molecules) that are making the reaction possible. Putting more Ozone in the stratosphere doesn't solve the problem as long as there are Chlorine molecules there to continue the destruction.
