“Americans store an estimated 65 million old desktop computers in their homes.” -US EPA
Like virtually every home and office across the nation, my family has accumulated its own small computer graveyard over the years. And this spring as we ponder what to do with our outdated ‘stuff’ taking up precious space in our closets, we discovered the Reconnect program — a joint effort by Dell and Goodwill.
Their Reconnect program recycles any brand of used computer equipment in any condition, and just about anything that can be connected to a computer. Freeing up space in your home is as simple as bringing the items to your local Goodwill. Not only do your donations create jobs and protect the environment, the Reconnect recycling program is free, and you’ll receive a receipt for tax purposes.
