Dell Reconnect: How It Works
|We've made it easy to help the environment—and others—in just a few easy steps:|
Find out if Dell Reconnect will accept the item
In general, Dell Reconnect accepts any brand of computer equipment in any condition from consumers and recycles it for free. We also accept just about anything that can be attached to a computer. Check our items we accept page for a complete list of what we do—and do not—accept.
Find a drop-off location
Dell Reconnect is offered in over 2,000 participating Goodwill locations though out North America. Please visit our location map to find a location in your area. If Dell Reconnect is not yet, available in your area, let us know. Goodwill and Dell are always working to expand the program. In the meantime, please check our Dell's free mail-back service for another convenient recycling option.
|Prepare your computer for donation|
Some items may require additional preparation before you bring them in as neither Dell nor Goodwill is liable for data removal or protection. So make sure you back up your data and wipe your hard drive before you drop off your equipment.
Drop off and feel good
Your donated equipment has value—sometimes as a whole system, sometimes as parts, and sometimes as raw materials such as metals, plastics and glass. The proceeds from your donation are all returned to Goodwill and help to support Goodwill's important mission of putting people to work. You'll get a receipt for tax purposes, plus you'll be helping to protect the environment and benefit your community at the same time!
