Goodwill Has Easy Way for you to Celebrate Earth Day - Click for more

The laptop you’ve dropped a hundred times has finally called it quits. The printer/scanner/copier has stalled on you for the last time. Your kids have left behind the game console to gather dust in the entertainment center. What do you do with all these electronics you no longer need? Take them to Goodwill.

The laptop you’ve dropped a hundred times has finally called it quits. The printer/scanner/copier has stalled on you for the last time. Your kids have left behind the game console to gather dust in the entertainment center. What do you do with all these electronics you no longer need? Take them to Goodwill.

“Electronic waste is becoming a major concern in our state,” said Brian Itzkowitz, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Arkansas. “Earth Day is Friday, April 22, and Goodwill’s e-waste program offers a safe and easy way for people, businesses and organizations to celebrate this day and dispose of unwanted electronics at Goodwill.”

Items that can be recycled include computers, laptops, iPads and other tablets; MP3 players, monitors, e-book readers; printers, toner and ink cartridges; scanners; software; digital and video cameras; cell phones and much more.

Donating is easy and convenient. To donate, drive up to Goodwill, pop your trunk and our Goodwill team will do the rest! Businesses and organizations upgrading computer, phone or other electronic systems can donate their old components to Goodwill. In fact, if your company or organization has a substantial amount of electronics to donate, Goodwill can schedule a pick up of these electronics. All donations to Goodwill are tax deductible.

“Goodwill accepts electronics donations all year,” Itzkowitz said. “We refurbish, recycle and use electronics for job training.”
