Staples and HP have teamed up to bring free electronics recycling for all brands of office technology at Staples stores nationwide.
According to a press release, consumers and small businesses can now responsibly recycle their electronics every day at Staples locations nationwide, regardless of where the devices were purchased.
“Staples free tech recycling program will help increase the number of electronic products that are safely recycled,” said Mark Buckley, Staples' vice president of environmental affairs.
“As a trusted source for office solutions, Staples is making it easy for consumers to responsibly recycle electronics for free every day at our stores. We are excited to work with HP on this initiative as part of our ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability.”
The Staples technology recycling program, powered by HP, accepts all brands of the following electronics for free:
- Desktop PCs, laptops, netbooks, tablet PCs, external hard drives and small servers
- All computer monitors
- Printers, desktop copiers, faxes and all-in-one devices
- Mice, keyboards, modems/routers networking and PC speakers
- Shredders, streaming devices, phones and Universal Power Supply (UPS battery backup)
- Mobile phones, GPS devices, MP3 players, digital camcorders and digital cameras
Customers can drop off their technology for recycling at the service desk of their local Staples store. According to the press release, Staples will take advantage of its world-class logistics networks to collect the devices and consolidate them at its distribution centers. A certified e-stewards and an R2 recycler will then arrange to have the materials transported to its processing centers.
Staples will not accept televisions, appliances, alkaline batteries, floor model copiers/printers, large servers, audio/visual equipment, or certain other household electronics (kitchen electrics, etc.).
There also is a limit of six items per customer per day in most states.
