ELECTRONICS RECYCLING

When you donate electronics to The GRID – working or non-working – we’ll do one of three things in partnership with Dell Reconnect:

  • Reuse your electronics to sell at The GRID. If you have data security concerns, don’t worry! Goodwill uses U.S. Department of Defense standards and R2/RIOS/e-stewards certifications to destroy company data left on hard drives.
  • Refurbish your electronics to like-new condition then sell them at The GRID.
  • Recycle your electronics responsibly, keeping hazardous materials out of the landfill.
