B2B RECYCLING SERVICES
Goodwill offers tax-deductible recycling services for businesses in the Charlotte area (including asset recovery, asset disposition, and de-manufacturing), while adhering to the highest industry standards for environmental safety and data security. We provide free on-site pickup of your business or commercial computers to ensure a secure chain of custody, and offer inventory tracking, donation receipts and certificates of destruction for your items.
Whenever possible, donated computers and other electronics are repaired and refurbished by clients in Goodwill’s E-Cycling training program. Goodwill uses U. S. Department of Defense standards and R2/RIOS/e-stewards certifications to destroy company data left on hard drives. Refurbished electronics are sold at our retail store The GRID: Powered by Goodwill. Items that cannot be resold are disposed of in a responsible manner to ensure that no environmentally-sensitive materials are sent to landfills. In 2018, your Goodwill diverted 1.1 million pounds of product from area landfills.
We process the following equipment:
- Computers and related peripherals
- Audio equipment
- Telecommunications and network systems
- Printers and scanners
- Circuit boards
- Mobile phones
HARD DRIVE SHREDDING
Does your business have data security concerns? Wiping a hard drive is not always sufficient to comply with your company’s data security needs. Goodwill now offers on-site hard drive shredding to ensure full data destruction.
