Give Old Computers, Give Green Jobs

Give old computers, give green jobs.

This is the second installment of our new Tuesday Tech4Good series that we started last week.  Since it's almost Earth Day, we thought we'd share some of the inspiring stories that have come as a result of responsibly recycling your computers at Goodwill Industries across the U.S. and Canada.  The Dell Reconnect program, a partnership with Goodwill Industries, helps protect the environment by keeping equipment out of landfills, but it also puts people to work.  Together, we've created more than 250 green jobs as a direct result of your computer donations. 

In the below video, hear stories from a few of the people who have benefitted from the Dell Reconnect program.

This Earth Day, we encourage you to responsibly recycle your old electronics.  You have many easy options.  Visit for a list of recycling options in your region.
