been responsibly recycled through Goodwill since the partnership with Dell started in Texas in 2004.

In addition to Goodwill's efforts to preserve the environment, what makes the organization's work meaningful to Dell is its mission to provide job training, employment and placement services for men and women with disabilities as well as our nation's veterans.
The Goodwill/Dell Reconnect partnership will offer donors FREE computer recycling at all Greater Cincinnati retail and donation locations as well as help to raise consumer awareness about the importance of responsibly recycling used computers.

Ohio Valley Goodwill is grateful to "Good Morning Tri-State" and WCPO for their assistance in sharing Goodwill's important mission of service to the Greater Cincinnati community.
I would recommend the services of Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries to anyone who needs a dependable and reliable labor force. J & M Marketing has been working with Goodwill for over 10 years and has been very pleased with the co-pack work we have completed at the Goodwill Facility. Their commitment to doing the job right and the first class finished product they produce is outstanding.
J & M has benefited from the services Goodwill offers by having product drop shipped directly to Goodwill. At their facility, they process my orders and inventory the orders until they need to be shipped. They have been very competitive in their prices and have been a valuable asset to my business. I have appreciated Goodwill’s services and their dedication to satisfying the needs of my business. J & M Marketing is also supportive of Goodwill’s Mission in working with people with disabilities.
"We appreciate the cooperation that we receive from local business and industry as it
helps Ohio Valley Goodwill to make real work experiences available for the people
we serve. We thank our business partners for the support that they provide each year."
