Dell and Goodwill Industries partnered to create a technology recycling program that benefits the environment and create green jobs in the community. In order to represent the different stages in the simplest terms, infographics were created to demonstrate the process.
Some systems in working condition are refurbished and resold through Goodwill®, creating green jobs to further support Goodwill's mission of helping people with disabilities and disadvantages by providing education, training and career services. In addition, this program allows Goodwill customers to purchase modern technology at an affordable cost.
Whatever parts cannot be reused or refurbished will be broken down securely and recycled responsibly, meeting Dell's extensive and strict Electronic Disposition Policy. We ensure that no environmentally sensitive materials will be sent to landfills and no items will be exported to developing countries.
