Computer / Electronics Recycling


At Goodwill, going green is nothing new. 

Goodwill offers a free, easy, and environmentally responsible way to get rid of your unwanted computers, printers, flat screen monitors, TV's and more.

Donations are collected at all Goodwill donation sites during regular business hours. Goodwill partners with reputable recycling partners to provide domestic disassembly of all nonworking and outdated equipment to maximize the commodity value for recovered metals, plastics, glass and circuit boards with a zero landfill policy for all regulated material.

Revenue from this program benefits thousands of people right here in West Michigan through a variety of services provided by Goodwill.
