NYC Tech Takeback – Saturday, November 14, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

techtakebackOn Saturday 11/14, in honor of America Recycles Day (November 15), Goodwill is teaming up with Uber and Dell to help New York City customers and donors get rid of and recycle that used technology you no longer use — and keep it out of landfills.

By simply tapping the RECONNECT option in the Uber app, you’ll be able to recycle your used electronics responsibly and donate to Goodwill NYNJ via the Dell Reconnect program.

Enter the code TECHTAKEBACK and request RECONNECT on November 14 to donate and recycle your used technology to Goodwill

Anyone who recycles with us on November 14 may also have the chance to meet Dell’s Social Good Advocate, Adrian Grenier, who will be riding with Uber making pickups, and thanking New Yorkers for recycling.

How It Works

  1. OPEN Uber app
  2. TAP the profile icon and select ‘Promotions’
  3. ENTER code TECHTAKEBACK to unlock the ‘RECONNECT’ view
  4. REQUEST ‘RECONNECT’ between 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday for an Uber driver-partner (or Adrien Grenier!) to arrive, pick up your donations and bring them to a local Goodwill NYNJ location.

The Details

  • NYC Tech Takeback Day is on Saturday, November 14. Donating will be available via the Uber app between 10a.m.-4 p.m. in Manhattan and areas of Brooklyn and Queens.
  • Donating your technology is totally FREE..
  • All vehicles on the road making pickups for NYC Tech Takeback Day will be energy-efficient hybrids.
