Reuse:

Donate working electronics and accessories to the following organizations. Check their donation guidelines to make sure they will accept the item.

To find out when, why and how to donate a used computer, check out TechSoup’s tips page.

Rotary Auction & Rummage Sale – Donate to the largest rummage sale in the Northwest in late June. Go here to learn about donations and donation week. Proceeds primarily support local organizations.
Post on Buy Nothing or Free on the Rock or Freecycle.

Goodwill – A Goodwill donation truck is located in the Bainbridge Island Ace Hardware parking lot, 635 NE High School Rd. Drop off only when they are open, which is almost 365 days a year. Hours are, 8:30am-5pm, but it is not uncommon for them to close up early due to a full truck. Do not leave items next to the truck.

Check here for Goodwill’s donation guidelines. Items should be in usable condition and keep in mind, the Bainbridge truck takes items no larger than an end table. (The Silverdale and Bremerton locations can take bigger items.)
