Recycling

Over the past decade, our environmental programs have evolved into an integrated electronic recycling approach that now diverts more than 285 tons of electronic waste from landfills each month! We institute economically and environmentally sound methods to recycling and reusing donated electronic equipment. Certified by the State of Texas as an authorized collector of electronic waste, we offer businesses a convenient, ecofriendly way to dispose of outdated or damaged equipment. Hard drives are safely decommissioned or destroyed in accordance with the Department of Defense standards.

Additionally, the Goodwill Resource Center, a 124,000 square foot facility in Southeast Austin, is a hub of recycling activity that handles large scale recycling and repurposing projects for businesses to meet their green initiatives. We work closely with organizations such as Dell, Seton Healthcare Family, and the City of Austin to execute on their large scale recycling needs.
