Recycle Goodwill - Green before green was top-of-mind
Green before green was top-of-mind
With all of the talk about doing your part to make our community sustainable, you can do one simple thing to help the environment – donate, don’t waste. Your donations of gently-used clothing, furniture, and appliances help to divert millions of pounds of goods OUT of landfills and into the hands of consumers who can use them. The best part is, your donations help the most vulnerable in our community acquire job training and receive career education.
Please see the tabs above to learn more about our triple bottom line and to learn more about the cycle of a donation. Interested in doing even more?
Consider hosting a donation drive.
With your company or your personal network, you can make a huge impact on diverting waste from landfills by putting your gently-used good to good use. If you are interested in hosting a donation drive for Goodwill, please contact Tamar Braatz at 303.487.8022.
Business professionals: clean out your office and reduce electronic waste.
Does your company have unused computers and electronics (excluding televisions) that could be put to better use? Consider donating to Goodwill’s Good Electronics program. We’ll even pick it up from your business location and provide you with a donation certificate and certificate of recycling.* Call 720.588.0510 for more information or to schedule a business pick up. Anything not sold in the stores will be recycled through the Dell Reconnect Program. View the Goodwill and Dell Reconnect Program PDF here.
Did you know? You can also recycle cell phones and other small electronics at Goodwill!
To recycle your phone, just visit any Goodwill retail location and look for the recycling bin. We safely and securely recycle cell phones, iPod or MP3 players, batteries, chargers, digital cameras, tablets, aircards and Bluetooth devices, accessories, and ink/toner cartridges.
*Goodwill does not provide residential pick-up services. Individuals can continue to donate via Goodwill stores and donation centers.
