Donating used electronics for reuse extends the lives of valuable products and maximizes the energy and resources that went into making the products. By donating your used electronics, you allow schools, nonprofit organizations, and lower-income families to obtain electronics that they otherwise could not afford.

Where to donate
Visit Goodwill to learn how to donate used computer equipment, televisions and other electronics. You may also be able to sell newer working electronics and cell phones.

When purchasing new equipment, schools or businesses may wish to negotiate removal and recycling of old equipment with vendors.

Goodwill locations accept all electronics, working and non-working, including those covered under the NYS Electronic Equipment and Recycling and Reuse Act, that are less than ten years old, from any individual or business in New York. Items are accepted at any location in the county, as listed below, and they qualify for a tax deduction as a charitable donation.

Please note that special arrangements must be made if electronic equipment exceeds ten units (or what can fit into the back of a small van). Stores have to plan to accommodate larger donations, which can be coordinated by contacting Goodwill’s Donation Department at (718) 777-6320 or .

Take-back programs
Many electronics retail centers and manufacturers also offer take-back programs to their customers. You can learn more about each manufacturer’s plan through information provided by the New York State Department of Conservation or by visiting the manufacturer’s Web site.

Another option for cell phones, laptops, cartridges and other similar items is Cartridges for Kids, a recycling organization who pays schools and non-profit organizations for these items.
