Goodwill offers free, safe, easy and environmentally responsible recycling of computers and electronics. Public donations of personal computers and electronics are accepted at all Goodwill Stores and Attended Donation Centers (except the North Side Store). Visit for a complete list of drop-off locations.

Goodwill is able to provide this service through a partnership with Dell Reconnect that aims to provide residential consumers with a safe place to recycle used computers. Dell has industry-leading experience in offering responsible consumer recycling programs that meet the highest standards of workplace and environmental safety. Working together, Goodwill and Dell are making free computer recycling available to more consumers and helping to raise consumer awareness about the importance of responsibly recycling used computers.

Computers that can be refurbished are then sold at Goodwill stores, so donating your computer not only helps keep e-waste out of landfills and helps families buy used electronic products at an affordable price, but every donation helps Goodwill bring the Power of Work to someone in your community.

A note about hard drives…
Neither Goodwill nor Dell is responsible or liable for personal data or hard drives. Goodwill has a secure facility where computers are disasssembled and processed for recycling. Newer computers have the hard drives wiped exceeding Department of Defense standards and the hard drives of older computers are destroyed, but ultimately Goodwill cannot take responsibility for confidential information. If you wish to remove personal data from hard drives and other storage media before donating to Goodwill, a number of free services are available online that will completely erase hard drives.
Computer Donations by Businesses, Schools and other Organizations

Goodwill actively solicits donations of “retired” computers from corporations, schools and other organizations, both large and small. Goodwill is a free, safe, easy and environmentally responsible way to discard of unwanted computer equipment and other electronics.
