Reconnect Program

Fact Sheet
Reconnect Drop Off Locations

Reconnect is a no-charge computer recycling program for consumers throughout the state of New Jersey and the City of Philadelphia.
The program is intended to raise awareness of the importance of responsible computer disposal and give residents a free and convenient way to do the right thing with their unwanted computer equipment.
Reconnect is managed by Dell, Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey, and Goodwill Industries of Southern New Jersey/Quaker City Goodwill. The goal of the program is to keep more than four million pounds of used computers and computer equipment from landfills in one year and to educate residents on the importance of proper computer recycling.

Significance of Program to the Region
All proceeds of value recovered from the recycled computer equipment go to Goodwill to support job training and employment services programs.
Consumers can drop-off computer equipment at any of 23 locations throughout New Jersey and Philadelphia.
New Jersey is only the second state in the country to have a state-wide consumer computer recycling program. Reconnect is available in a limited number of U.S. communities including Austin, Texas, San Francisco, San Diego, San Antonio, Pittsburgh, North Carolina, and the state of Michigan.
While computers are safe to use, they do contain some environmentally sensitive materials. These materials can be safely removed or recycled, but only if the computers are kept out of landfills in the first place. Reconnect provides an environmentally responsible solution for computer recycling.

What Happens to Donated Computer Equipment
Goodwill will accept and sort the donated computer equipment. The equipment will be responsibly recycled through Dell’s Asset Recovery Services value recovery program.

How to Recycle an Unwanted Computer
Residents of New Jersey and City of Philadelphia can visit www.reconnectpartnership.com to locate the most convenient drop-off location at any of the 23 participating Goodwill donation centers and retail stores.
There is no charge for dropping off a computer at Goodwill. Any brand of used computer is accepted.
Customers are responsible for removing data from their hard drives. Neither Goodwill nor Dell is liable for data removal or protection.
Customers may be able to deduct the value of the computer for tax purposes. Goodwill will provide donors with a donation receipt at the time of donation. Customers are encouraged to check with their tax advisors for more information.
