Computer recycling has helped reduce contamination of third world countries and landfills. When Williamson County Recycle Center first opened we accepted Electronic Waste (E-Waste) for recycle. This was due to no options in the area that were neither feasible nor accessible. In 2011, Texas passed E-Waste Legislation that required Computer Manufacturers to take back their computers and computer accessories. Dell Computer in partnership with Goodwill industries formed a take back program that made recycling computers extremely feasible. After the changes were made we elected to no longer accept E-Waste. This was for two reasons first we charged and felt it was a better to direct people to Goodwill for free and second Goodwill has more locations making it more convenient.
Goodwill Industries has a great program that helps communities on multiple levels. First it provides a great service but they also employ and train individuals giving them a trade. If you have any E-Waste contact your local Goodwill. Goodwill will take items such as TV’s, computers, keyboards, mouses, cameras, phones, etc. that qualify as E-Waste. Please assist with Computer Recycling.
