HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) - Looking for a way to dispose of that old computer? GoodwillIndustries has the answer. For nearly five years, Goodwill has hada "Don't Dump, Donate" computer recycling program and they wantyour old computer.
Goodwill will even take computers that don't work and literallysmash the hard drive and sell the remains to vendors. On computersthat do work, Goodwill will erase the hard drive and sell it.All other parts, monitors, printers and such are cleaned up and putup for sale.
And though as ambitious as the Goodwill program is, they andother recyclers estimate they're still getting just one-tenth ofthe computers that need to be recycled.
"People are able to get those at a great price, we're able tokeep them out of the landfills and we're able to help put peopleback to work in our community," Bo Hussey with Goodwill Industriessaid.
