B2B RECYCLING SERVICES
Goodwill offers tax-deductible electronics 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.
Goodwill uses U.S. Department of Defense standards to destroy company data left on hard drives. Refurbished electronics are sold at The GRID: Powered by Goodwill, and proceeds from those sales fund career training courses, job search support, family stability services and more, which we offer free of charge to thousands of people in our community each year. Items that cannot be refurbished are disposed of in a responsible manner to ensure that no environmentally-sensitive materials are sent to landfills. Last year, The GRID diverted almost 1.3 million pounds of electronics 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.
