What is Goodwill Reboot?
It’s an opportunity to donate working or non-working computers.
We recycle or resell those donations in the Goodwill Reboot section of our Cedar Rapids East Store.
What you can donate
Computers — and anything that plugs into them — can be donated at any one of our Goodwill stores during regular business hours. We also accept donations of consumer electronics in good working condition. This includes alarm clocks, radios, stereo equipment, etc., but not televisions. Perhaps you are a business looking to clear out older or recently off-lease units to make room for new ones. Perhaps you are an individual who has recently upgraded your computer and are wondering what to do with the old one. When you donate to Goodwill, you help create jobs for people who face barriers to independence.
Goodwill Reboot also recycles computers and related gear to benefit our mission. Thanks to our partnership with Dell Reconnect, Goodwill is the largest recycler of e-waste in the United States.
- Desktop computers
- CRT and LCD Monitors (but not televisions)
- Other Computer Peripherals
- Networking Equipment
- Software (including video games)
