Goodwill is one of the original partakers in recycling, diverting gently used items from the landfill into the hands of people who want them. The revenue from donations pays the employees who live in the community, pay taxes, and consume local goods. We now add Electronic recycling to that mission.

Comprenew is a DEQ registered and nationally certified electronics recycler, based in Grand Rapids, MI. Comprenew strives to demonstrate that people who traditionally have barriers to employment can perform at the highest standards given the right training and environment. Comprenew operates three social programs that improve access to information technology, provide work experience, and offer service learning programs for corporations, community groups, and schools

The Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP) is a Great Lakes non-profit organization serving the communities of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, and Lake Huron). The mission of the SWP is to protect and improve the natural resources of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan on a watershed basis by promoting responsible individual and community actions that ensure a sustainable environment, encourage a sustainable economy, and help improve the quality of life.
