Donations of Computer Equipment and Other E-Waste
Through a partnership with Dell, Goodwill accepts computers to be recycled for free, even those not in working condition. You can also pack up an old laptop, tablet or netbook, as well as accessories such as mice and printers, and donate them to Goodwill. Through the Dell Reconnect program, Goodwill offers donors a way to dispose of computers and accessories in an environmentally responsible way while receiving a tax deduction at the same time!
Through a partnership with the Stark-Tuscarawas-Wayne Joint Sold Waste District, Wayne County residents can donate up to 12 tires per person per year off the rim (4 per person each time). Car and light truck tires only. Tires are accepted at 1034 Nold Avenue, Wooster, between 8:00am and 11:30am, Monday through Friday.
Goodwill accepts donations of cars, trucks, motorcycles, campers, trailers, recreational vehicles and boats. The net proceeds generated by the sale of donated vehicles helps to support Goodwill’s mission of helping individuals prepare for, find, and retain employment in Wayne and Holmes Counties.
What Items Cannot be Accepted?
Due to potential safety concerns and the cost of waste disposal, Goodwill must decline certain items. Goodwill will not accept the items listed here Items Goodwill Can Not Accept which require transportation or repair that Goodwill cannot safely or adequately provide.
Why Can’t Goodwill Take Baby Items?
While Goodwill appreciates you wanting to share your baby items like high chairs, strollers, car seats and cribs, due to the Consumer Safety Commission Guidelines, we cannot accept these items as they may have been recalled. Goodwill does not want to place any child in danger.
What Happens to Unusable Donations?
Goodwill gladly accepts donations of unusable clothing or other textiles! These items can be sold in bulk to be recycled, keeping them out of the landfills and allowing Goodwill to contribute the proceeds from the sale to its employment training programs.
