The Electronics Clean Out Day will provide area residents with an environmentally friendly and convenient recycling option at four different locations throughout Goodwill's service area.
This collaboration between Natural Awakenings Magazine of SWVA, Clean Valley Council, Roanoke Natural Food Co-op, Friendly City Co-op, Yokohama Tire, Wade's Supermarkets, Go Green NRV, and Goodwill Industries of the Valleys is an effort to keep computers, computer related equipment, electronics, small appliances, and more out of area landfills and help protect our environment.
Goodwill will be the recipient of donations and recyclable items. Goodwill's participation in this event is an extension of a Goodwill partnership with Dell Computers, which responsibly recycles the computers and related equipment through the Dell RECONNECTTM partnership, with proceeds benefiting Goodwill job training and employment programs. Other items collected will either be sold in local Goodwill stores or recycled responsibly with local recyclers.
Acceptable items for the Fall E.C.O. Day include, but are not limited to:
* Desktop and Laptop Computers: any brand, any condition.
* Computer Equipment: (any brand, any condition) monitors, keyboards, CPUs, printers, scanners, fax machines, ink & toner cartridges, computer cords & cables, and any related computer equipment.
It is recommended that donors remove all data from hard drives and other storage media before donating to Goodwill.
* Small Appliances: toasters, microwaves, blenders, coffee makers, mixers, vacuums, food processors.
* Electronics: Clocks, radios, cell phones, PDAs.
* TVs in working condition
