Educate the public about the hazards of throwing computer equipment away and encourage responsible recycling as alternative. Electronics contain toxic metals and chemicals that can seriously damage the environment when they end up in landfills. Organizations such as Goodwill Industries of Arkansas take donations of any kind of computer, in any condition, along with any peripherals and recycles them through a partnership with Dell in order to divert them from landfills. This service is free to the public as well as to state and city organizations, schools, and corporations.
