Dell Reconnect: Donate any brand of computer to Goodwill
|Technology is improving every day. Today’s computers are quickly leaving yesterday’s systems in the past — or in your closet, basement or attic.|
Dell has made it easy for you to recycle your used computer equipment through Dell Reconnect, a partnership with Goodwill Industries.
Simply take your old computer equipment of any brand, in any condition, to one of Goodwill's 2,000+ participating locations throughout North America and we'll make sure your system and accessories are refurbished or recycled responsibly.
Recycle your old technology at one of over 2,000 Goodwill locations in the U.S.
|Impacting the environment and creating jobs|
Since 2004, we’re kept over 427 million pounds of e-waste out of landfills. That’s the equivalent of over 49 million Inspiron laptops — one for every person in the states of California and Ohio.
Some systems in working condition are refurbished and resold through Goodwill, creating green jobs to further support Goodwill's mission of helping people with disabilities and disadvantages by providing education, training and career services. In addition, this program allows Goodwill customers to purchase modern technology at an affordable cost.
Whatever parts cannot be reused or refurbished will be broken down securely and recycled responsibly, meeting Dell's extensive and strict Electronic Disposition Policy. We ensure that no environmentally sensitive materials will be sent to landfills and no items will be exported to developing countries.
