Dell And Goodwill Launch Free Computer Recycling Service

Dell is continuing on its quest to become a green company, this time with an expansion of Reconnect, the firm's electronics recycling service.

The company said that consumers can now bring their computers regardless of brand and shape to locations of Goodwill and Houston Computer Works stores. Sometimes, it actually can be a challenge to get rid of old electronics: Many U.S. counties offer electronics recycling programs, but collection times are often very limited and some counties have begun charging for this service.

With the expansion to Houston and 15 surrounding counties, Reconnect is now available in 57 counties in Texas. Other locations covered by Reconnect are counties in Michigan and New Jersey, North Carolina, Northwest Ohio and the cities of Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, San Diego and San Francisco (Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties).
