Dell, Goodwill Add 319 Recycling Locations
With the expansion, the free program will now be available in 77 additional counties across Florida Ohio, Alabama and Kansas.
There are now more than 2,600 Goodwill drop-off locations in the U.S. and Canada giving more than 6.8 million households access to free electronics recycling.
The expansion is estimated to divert another 7.5 million pounds of unwanted electronics from landfills annually.
Since its inception in 2004, Dell Reconnect has recycled more than 230 million pounds of end-of-life computer equipment, helping Dell toward its global goal of recycling 1 billion pounds of computer equipment by 2014.
In April, the electronics manufacturer announced that it was two-thirds of the way towards that goal. Dell said that it diverted 150 million pounds of used electronics from landfills worldwide in the 2011 financial year, an increase of around 16 percent on 2010.
