Donate used electronics to Goodwill on July 18


Area residents who are doing summer cleaning and looking for a place to dispose of their used computer and other electronic devices are encouraged to donate their outdated equipment to Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania during its Lawrenceville Community Electronics Collection Day on Saturday, July 18.

Donations will be accepted at the Goodwill Workforce Development Center, 118 52nd Street, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. A donation receipt can be provided for tax purposes.

“We know how difficult it can be to find places that will accept used computers and other electronics,” notes Bora Caliskan, director of operations with Goodwill SWPA. “Our Pittsburgh neighbors can enjoy the convenience of stopping by our Lawrenceville facility to drop off unwanted electronics, free of charge.”

Goodwill SWPA welcomes donations of computers, monitors, printers, fax machines, cell phones, digital cameras, adapters and microwaves, but cannot accept televisions.

Donated equipment goes to the Goodwill Computer Recycling Center, which processes thousands of donated computers annually. Some computers are refurbished and sold at Goodwill SWPA’s ComputerWorks store at 125 51st Street in Lawrenceville, and some are “de-manufactured” to remove valuable components and precious metals to be sold as salvage materials. Anything that cannot be reused is disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.

Donations of computers and other electronics can be dropped off anytime at any Goodwill SWPA store during regular store hours. For store locations, visit For more information about donating a computer to Goodwill, visit:
