In honor of America Recycles Day, Dell, Uber NYC, and Goodwill NYNJ are teaming up to offer free pick-up of used electronics to recycle responsibly through the Dell Reconnect program. Dell Reconnect is a partnership between Dell and Goodwill that provides free consumer electronics recycling of any brand, in any condition, at more than 2,000 participating Goodwill locations throughout the U.S. The NYC Tech Takeback event is focused on providing free and convenient pick-up services thru Uber to help consumers in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens donate their used computer equipment, for free, without ever leaving their home. In addition, Dell’s Social Good Advocate and the star of Entourage, Adrian Greiner, will be hosting the event and riding along with Uber to surprise donors at their door and thank them for participating in the event and doing their part to help protect the environment.
