We’re proud to meet the growing needs of businesses, government agencies, and local organizations to up-cycle and properly recycle items they no longer need. Over the past decade, our recycling initiatives have evolved into an approach that as of 2020, diverts more than 88% of what we receive from the landfill.
We offer our donors a convenient, eco-friendly way to dispose of outdated or damaged equipment. Hard drives are safely decommissioned or destroyed in accordance with the Department of Defense standards.
Additionally, the Goodwill After-Market Sales Center, an 87,000 square foot facility in South Fort Worth, is a hub of recycling activity that handles large-scale recycling. We work closely with organizations such as Service Waste as well as local business, colleges and universities to execute large-scale recycling projects. With all of these efforts, along with future plans, we are on track to reach our goal of becoming a Zero Waste facility.
