Dell announced an expansion of their recycling program yesterday. They’ve partnered with Goodwill Industries (but apparently not yet in Florida), and expanded other aspects of their recycling effort. Read their announcement here.
Here’s one quote from the announcement: “In November 2008, Dell and Staples made history by announcing a free in-store recycling program for Dell’s customers. Customers can responsibly recycle any amount of Dell branded computers, printers, monitors or peripheral items for free at Staples’ 1,500 U.S. store locations, without having to make a purchase.”
Please let us know if you try to dispose of Dell equipment at a Staples store.
It’s good to see Dell behave responsibly. Disposal of electronic scrap is a serious environmental and health problem.
