Donating Electronics

Donating electronics is easy and safe.

Donating to Goodwill is a safe and environmentally-friendly donation option for the electronics you no longer use.

Out-of-date workstations and devices are worth a lot to Goodwill. In fact, we’ve partnered with Dell’s Reconnect program to help you easily and responsibly recycle household electronic wares. Bring computers and peripherals to any participating Goodwill collection location, and we’ll give you a receipt. Helping your community and saving the planet isn’t just tax-deductible; it’s free and easy!

We can accept:

  • Desktop Computers
  • Laptops
  • Notebook and Netbook Computers
  • Monitors, Printers, and Scanners
  • Hard Drives – Internal or External
  • Keyboards and Mice (not the live ones, please!)
  • Speakers
  • Cords and Cables
  • Ink and Toner Cartridges
  • Software
  • Microsoft Xbox,
  • Microsoft Zune
  • Microsoft Webcams

What’s the Dell Reconnect program?

This Goodwill-Dell partnership is a residential computer recycling program that offers easy, convenient, and planet-friendly computer equipment recycling. All you do is simply drop-off items at a participating Goodwill donation center. It’s a 100% free hug for Mother Earth!

Does my local Goodwill store accept electronics?

Yes, you can drop computers and e-ware at any Goodwill location.

Is personal information secure if I donate a computer?

Consumers should remove personal data from hard drives and other storage media before donating to Goodwill. Dell also performs intensive third-party audits of its recycling program – more than 150 first-tier audits have already been performed to ensure the strictest standards are followed.
