Last month, Corporate Vision unveiled its winners for the 2021 Technology Innovators Awards. Among the winners from around the world was our very own Computer Works store here in Santa Ana!

Corporate Vision launched the Technology Innovator Awards to recognize all companies that are helping – in whatever way they can – to deliver change through innovation, expertise and creativity.

So, what is the Computer Works store? It’s your one-stop shop for computer and electronics thrifting!

When any electronics are donated to Goodwill of Orange County – from laptops, keyboards, DVD players and headphones to desktop computers, TVs and speakers – they go to this store located at 412 N. Fairview Street in Santa Ana. Shop in aisles of discounted, gently used electronics to find exactly what you need.

How does the entire process work? Our generous donors bring gently used devices to a local donation center. Each donation is then tested for proper use and securely wiped of its memory. If working correctly, electronic devices are brought to Goodwill’s Computer Works store to take on a second life.

If a device is broken or damaged, we wrap and send these materials out to be further recycled and repurposed. Last year, we recycled 648,833 pounds of e-waste!
