We've made it easy to help the environment—and others—in just a few easy steps:
Find out if Reconnect will accept the item.
In general, 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.
Use our Find a Location feature (at the top of this page) to see if a Goodwill near you participates in the program. If Reconnect is not yet available in your area, let us know. Goodwill and Dell are working to continue expanding the program and share a long term goal of making it available nationwide.
Drop off the item.
As a general rule, consumers can just drop off the item at any participating Goodwill. However, some items may require extra preparation before you bring them in. For details, check our items we accept page.
Feel good about what you've done.
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!
