Recycle E-Waste

E-Waste

Effective September 1, 2018

Southern Oregon Goodwill no longer accepts donations of e-waste

 

E-Waste is defined as: desktop computers, laptops, CPUs, towers, keyboards, computer mice, printers, scanners, projection TVs, older tube TVs (black plastic housing, curved screens,) and console TVs (built into wooden cabinets,) CRT computer monitors, and cable/satellite boxes.

Why? The global recycling market is changing and costs and restrictions are increasing for recycling e-waste. While we hope market forces in plastics and electronics recycling will change in the future, it is too costly for Goodwill to recycle e-waste under current conditions.

Funds we have earned from e-waste, as with all monies from donations, fund our job training and vocational programs in your area. These added expenses equate to funding pulled away from our mission. Our processes should help all ensure that our mission is our top priority.

Thank you for understanding and helping Goodwill do the most good for the community with your donations.
