Recycle electronics at Triad Goodwill
Donate your e-waste for safe disposal and reuse
GREENSBORO, NC – Earth Day is April 22, but Triad Goodwill is celebrating all month by encouraging residents and businesses to donate unwanted electronics year-round. As a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, Triad Goodwill is able to de-manufacture, refurbish, or recycle electronics responsibly, preventing hazardous materials from reaching local landfills. Last year, Triad Goodwill recycling programs helped divert a half million pounds of electronics from area landfills.
“We are dedicated to protecting the environment and public health, and that includes keeping computers, cell phones, televisions and other electronic devices out of area landfills,” said Celeste MacMurdo, Vice President of Retail Operations for Triad Goodwill. “When you donate e-waste to us, we ensure your hard drives will be properly erased if refurbished and resold. If not usable, e-waste is broken down to component parts and shredded for proper recycling.”
Electronics can be donated anytime at any of Triad Goodwill’s 22 Donation Centers attached to their stores and at three weekend-only locations. Visit ilovegoodwill.org/donate
to find your nearest donation site in Alamance, Caswell, Guilford, Randolph or Rockingham County. Triad Goodwill cannot accept non-flat screen tube televisions.
Trained technicians at Triad Goodwill test donated electronics. Unusable devices are de-manufactured and recycled in an environmentally friendly manner that meets all local, state and federal laws, rules and regulations, while also complying with R2, e-Stewards and ISO 14001:2004 standards and procedures.
Donated electronics are often sold at Triad Goodwill stores, with desktop systems loaded with Windows 10 and Microsoft Office starting at $99. See ilovegoodwill.org/shop/computer-sales/
for additional items.
Triad Goodwill’s e-waste recycling program not only helps the environment, but also supports the community by helping fund their mission of free career services for the un- and underemployed.
