When you’re upgrading technology at home or your office, a safe and tax-deductible way to recycle old laptops is to donate them to charities like Goodwill. First, they do accept old technology and follow strict standards set by the U.S. Department of Defense to scrub the hard drives clean. They guarantee no one will ever see what’s on your computer; it goes into a special machine that wipes the computer clean without ever turning it on. Then it’s either sold at the store or given to a person in need through their GoodTech program.
