Last Thursday WBIR interviewed Dan Thompson and John Homa on how to safely recycle your computers, peripherals, and gadgets. Both experts recommended Goodwill Industries-Knoxville‘s safe recycling partnership with Dell Reconnect. See the interview here and always remember to take computers and accessories to Goodwill, where you can be assured that any confidential or personal information on your hard drive will be responsibly removed. Even better – if you can’t take your used equipment to Goodwill, you can schedule a free pickup and they will come to you! And best of all: the Dell Reconnect project puts local people to work sorting and packing the items, allowing people who otherwise might have a barrier to employment to have the sense of accomplishment of earning their own living and contributing to our community and our local economy, and proceeds benefit Goodwill Industries.
