Free Electronics Donation Pickup

SF Goodwill Electronics Recycling
With FREE pickup and more than 30 donation drop-off sites in San Francisco, Marin and San Mateo counties, we make it easy to recycle your electronics, working or not.

Recycling your electronics with Goodwill not only keeps materials out of Bay Area landfills, it powers local job training programs and job creation in San Francisco, San Mateo, and Marin counties.

Free Pickup
Free electronics donations pickup service is available to businesses and households that have a minimum quantity of 5 qualifying items (laptops, desktop computers, or enterprise network switches). We can pickup Monday through Friday, from 8am to 6pm.

For the Environment
No electronics will be shipped overseas or dumped into landfills. We provide environmentally responsible electronics recycling using methods that are E-steward and R2 certified.

Privacy Assurance
All data is erased using a specialized software process with modern NIST 800-88 standards to erase and clean all magnetic hard drives, mobile devices, flash memory and SSD drives. We also manage an onsite hard drive destruction service available with serial number tracking and certificate of destruction for an additional fee. Your peace of mind is our top priority. Electronics not passing our quality control check are recycled responsibly using methods that are E-steward and R2 certified.
