Computer / Electronic Recycling


Goodwill offers a free, easy, and environmentally responsible way to get rid of your old computer. Simply drop off your unwanted computer or computer-related equipment, at any Goodwill store or donation center throughout the state of Michigan!

Goodwill recycles computers, monitors, printers, TVs and a wide variety of other electronic devices. Donations are collected at all Goodwill donation sites during regular business hours. Goodwill partners with Valley City Electronic Recycling in Grand Rapids to provide domestic disassembly of all nonworking and outdated equipment to maximize the commodity value for recovered metals, plastics, glass and circuit boards with a zero landfill policy for all regulated material.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.

This is a free, easy and environmentally responsible way to get rid of all those old devices stored in the basement and closets.
