Data Doctors is a chain of computer repair and data recovery shops, and many of their
locations will accept anything electronic--for example, computers, printers, TVs, VCRs,
gaming devices, and cell phones, but it’s best to call to check first. Remove your data from
your devices before donating or recycling them. Prices vary, but most Data Doctors locations
will remove your data for a fee.
Following are three Chandler Data Doctors locations:
Arizona StRUT is a partnership between local high schools and businesses, where students
learn new skills by refurbishing used computer equipment. The equipment is then
donated to schools and other qualified non-profit organizations throughout Arizona. They
accept all computer electronics, and personal electronics such as stereo equipment, DVD,
VCR players, etc.
Arizona StRUT is a non-profit organization and you will receive a tax receipt for your donation.
The closest high school drop-off locations are Gilbert High School (480-497-0177)
and Tempe High School (480-967-1661).
Equipment for AZStRUT can also be dropped off at Batteries Plus stores throughout the
Valley, including the following Chandler location:
Batteries Plus - Dobson & Elliott
3014 N Dobson Rd.
Goodwill Industries - Dell Reconnect dellreconnect.com/
Dell sponsors Dell Reconnect in connection with Goodwill Industries. You can drop off your old computer equipment at any Goodwill Industries store that participates in the program. Goodwill then ships the equipment to Dell for recycling or refurbishing. Some systems in working condition are refurbished and resold through Goodwill, creating green jobs to further support Goodwill's mission of helping people with disabilities and disadvantages by providing education, training and career services. In addition, this program al-lows Goodwill customers to purchase modern technology at an affordable cost.
Any proceeds from your donation are returned to Goodwill. You can obtain a receipt for your donation, but you may need to request one when you drop off your donation.
You are responsible for removing any personal data from your computer. For other electronic devices, check with the manufacturer to learn how to remove personal data from those devices.
