The disposal of outdated and unusable computer equipment is a growing problem in our community. Goodwill has partnered with Dell Reconnect to accept all computers and peripheral devices for responsible disposal and recycling. The free service diverts millions of pounds of used electronics equipment from area landfills.
Using donated items as "raw material," we test, de-manufacture and salvage all working parts. Working computers and related equipment are refurbished and sold in the Goodwill Computer Store and Recycling Center at 1010 Green Acres Road in Eugene.
We accept computer donations at all of our 19 donation sites in Lane and South Coast Counties. Proceeds from the sale of donated goods funds job training and services for individuals with barriers to employment. In 2010 we diverted more than 1.5 million pounds of e-waste from area landfills.
