Recycle your Computer Equipment with Dell Reconnect
Through a partnership with Dell, Goodwill offers our community the opportunity to responsibly recycle unwanted computers and equipment of any brand and condition.
This exciting program makes getting rid of old technology easy and FREE. Simply pack your old computer equipment into the car with other household donations and drop it off at any of our locations.
The goal of the program is to keep used computers and computer equipment from landfills and to educate residents on the importance of proper computer recycling. Dell Reconnect accepts any brand of computer equipment, in any condition, at over 2,000 Goodwill locations throughout the United States.
