Staples lets customers trade in printers for added value and free recycling

Staplesis hosting the printer recycling event for the second consecutive year. During the 2008 recycling event, Staples collected more than 100,000 printers, and expects to recycle even more this spring. To make it easier for customers to recycle office technology, Staples is also offering customers free recycling of any technology product it sells on Earth Day, April 22, 2009, at any Staples store nationwide. Customers can bring in any item Staples sells to recycle at their local Staples, including telephones, digital cameras, computers, laptops and GPS devices (one per item customer).

Every day at Staples customers can earn $3 back in Staples Rewards or Staples Teacher Rewards when they recycle any brand of ink and toner cartridges, up to 10 per month. Staples also offers every-day free in-store recycling of cell phones, PDAs, Dell computer equipment and any brand of computer accessories, and technology recycling for printers, laptops, computers and monitors for a $10 service charge.
