Donate: What Not to Donate

As a result of the new e-waste recycling law in Pennsylvania, Goodwill has received a high-volume of TVs that we are unable to sell or that we can't recycle. We DO accept computers, monitors, etc. We work with Dell Reconnect in recycling computers. We are working to find a vendor that will help us recycle TVs. Until then, we are sorry that we can't take your TV donation.
