The Dell Reconnect program explained

In 2004, Dell Technologies and Goodwill® partnered to provide consumers and small businesses with a convenient way to responsibly recycle their old technology for free.

For nearly 20 years, this program has helped protect the environment while supporting communities by providing skills training and employment opportunities for people in the United States.

Today, Dell Technologies partners with 72 Goodwill entities across the US to provide this free service that accepts any brand of electronics, in any condition, at more than 2,000 drop-off locations in 44 states.

Good for the planet. Good for people.

Dell Technologies and Goodwill share the same values around protecting the planet and people. We are both committed to taking the right actions to reduce our environmental impact and drive positive outcomes for business and society.
