Dell and Goodwill have extended their Dell Reconnect computer recycling program outside continental North America for the first time, launching the program in Hawaii. In time for America Recycles Day on Nov. 15, the program will accept used electronics at seven Goodwill Industries of Hawaii locations on the island of Oahu. Program leaders expect the new drop-off sites to collect an annual 500,000 pounds of end-of-life electronics equipment including computers, monitors, keyboards, hard drives and other accessories.

Dell helps customers protect the environment by offering recycling programs that are easy to use, convenient, effective, secure and responsible. In North America, Dell works with Goodwill through the Dell Reconnect program, which offers consumers free recycling for any brand of used computer equipment at nearly 2,500 Goodwill locations. Today the program reaches more than 64 million households in the United States and Canada; it has recycled more than 253 million pounds of equipment since its launch in 2004.

The program accepts all brands of used computer equipment in any condition. Proceeds from the resale value of donations are returned to Goodwill Industries to support its mission of helping people with disabilities and disadvantages receive job training and support services, including child care, youth mentoring and transportation. And consumers can donate their equipment knowing it will be recycled securely and responsibly, meeting Dell’s strict e-waste policies to ensure no environmentally sensitive materials are sent to landfills or exported to developing countries.

Dell Reconnect officially launched at Goodwill Industries of Hawaii with a recycling drive on Nov. 10 for members of the community to bring in their used computer equipment. To learn more about Dell Reconnect, visit www.dell.com/reconnect.
