“Electronic waste is becoming a major concern in our state,” said Brian Itzkowitz, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Arkansas. “Earth Day is Friday, April 22, and Goodwill’s e-waste program offers a safe and easy way for people, businesses and organizations in Arkansas to celebrate this day and dispose of unwanted electronics at Goodwill retail stores and donation centers.”

Items that can be recycled include computers, laptops, iPads and other tablets; MP3 players, monitors, e-book readers; printers, toner and ink cartridges; scanners; software; digital and video cameras; cell phones and much more.

Donating is easy and convenient. To donate, drive up to Goodwill, pop your trunk and our Goodwill team will do the rest! Businesses and organizations upgrading computer, phone or other electronic systems can donate their old components to Goodwill. In fact, if your company or organization has a substantial amount of electronics to donate, Goodwill can schedule a pick up of these electronics. All donations to Goodwill are tax deductible.

“Goodwill accepts electronics donations all year,” Itzkowitz said. “We refurbish, recycle and use electronics for job training.”
