Easy recycling of computers offered

Goodwill Industries of San Diego County and Dell introduced Reconnect San Diego, a free drop-off program for recycling of unwanted computers.

The goal of the pilot program is to divert at least two million pounds of used computers and computer equipment from landfills and to provide consumer education on the importance of proper computer disposal — while creating job opportunities for individuals with disabilities and other employment barriers.

Goodwill will collect and sort the donated computer equipment, which will be recycled through the Dell Asset Recovery Services value recovery program.

Dell’s authorized product recovery partner will remarket the recycled materials, such as plastics, glass and metals, and all sales proceeds will go to Goodwill to support the non-profit’s job training and employment services programs.

Other Reconnect pilot programs are under way with Goodwill Industries organizations in Central Texas, Michigan and the San Francisco Bay area.
