Reconnect Program: Through Dell’s alliance with Goodwill Industries in several markets, consumers can donate unwanted electronics of any brand in any condition at Goodwill intake sites.
Asset Recovery Services: Dell offers product recovery services that help business and institutional customers responsibly manage the retirement of used IT equipment.
Computer Donation: Through Dell's partnership with the National Cristina Foundation, customers can donate any working computer system to non-profit organizations in their areas.
Dell has launched a new website, www.dell.com/earth, which provides in-depth information on Dell’s environmental programs.
