HOW TO DONATE A COMPUTER

Goodwill welcomes the donation of unwanted electronics including computers, printers and other peripherals at any of its stores or donation centers.

Goodwill will pick up your donation if you have more than ten large items. This may also include office furniture and equipment. Please call (336) 714-3066 for more information.

Donating a Computer is Safe

Donated computers suitable for sale in Goodwill stores are processed using specialty software and U. S. Department of Defense standards to destroy personal data left on all hard drives. Older computers are de-manufactured and hard drives are destroyed.

While Goodwill takes steps to verify erasure or destruction of data on storage devices, Goodwill assumes no responsibility for data.

Donating a Computer is Good for the Environment

Computers are not allowed in county landfills due to the lead and mercury content in the systems. Goodwill's computer recycling process diverts over 2.6 million pounds of e-waste from landfills each year.

Donated computers that are not suitable for sale in Goodwill stores are de-manufactured and broken down into their component parts such as plastics and metals. Goodwill's partnership with Dell in RECONNECT ensures that we will work with environmentally responsible, authorized product recovery partners to remarket the remaining materials.
