Dell and Goodwill launch free recycling service in northwest
Reconnect, a free drop-off program to recycle unwanted
computers, was introduced by Dell and Goodwill Industries of Northwest
Reconnect offers consumers free recycling for any brand of computer equipment
in any condition.
Program goals are to divert nearly one million pounds of used computers
and computer equipment from area landfills over the next year and provide
consumer education on the importance of environmentally-responsible computer
disposal. Reconnect also helps create job opportunities for individuals
with disabilities and other employment barriers.
“Goodwill Industries of Northwest Ohio is very happy to begin the operational
phase of our partnership with Dell,” said Bob Huber, Goodwill’s President
and CEO. “Responsible recycling of e-waste is critical to our environment
and we are excited to offer this program to the communities we serve.
As the pilot for other Ohio Goodwills, we join Michigan and other Goodwill/Dell
Reconnect partners around the country in this beneficial community effort
while supporting Goodwill’s mission and creating new jobs.”
