Places to recycle old computer equipment
Goodwill Industries is promoting a computer recycling event Saturday, Aug. 29. Drop-off places include the Westside warehouse dock (in the 2300
block alley behind Colorado Avenue) and the attended trailer at the Wal-Mart on South Eighth Street.
The event, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., is part of Reconnect, a partnership with Dell, but it's really just a special event that emphasizes Goodwill's ongoing readiness to accept any donated computers and accessories, according to Goodwill spokesperson Laura Marth.
She elaborated that Goodwill's one-time restriction against taking older computer equipment has been lifted. “People can donate any old computers, working or not, anytime our donation centers are open,” she said. The hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at the trailer and 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the dock (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends).
