Recycle old computers/electronics at Goodwill

Goodwill Industries and Dell have joined forces in a new computer and electronics recycling program called "Reconnect."

Reconnect allows FREE consumer drop-off of unwanted electronic devices that will be responsibly recycled OR refurbished and reused at participating Goodwill stores and drop-off sites.

According to the Reconnect website, you are responsible for removing data from your computer before dropping it off. There are many freeware and shareware programs that will do this. (I'll find a few and share them in a future post)

You will also find a list of participating Michigan Goodwill stores and drop-off locations on the Reconnect website:
While there be sure to check out the FAQs to see what may be donated.

In addition to helping our environment, proceeds will assist Goodwill Industries with its many community programs. AND, you may even be able to take a tax deduction!
