and HP have announced free electronics recycling for all brands of office technology at Staples stores nationwide.
Consumers and small businesses can responsibly recycle their electronics every day at Staples locations nationwide, regardless of where the devices were purchased.
Eletronics can be dropped off for recycling at the service desk of their local Staples store. The company will 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.
The Staples technology recycling program, powered by HP, accepts all brands of the following electronics for free (2):
• 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)

“Staples free tech recycling program will help increase the number of electronic products that are safely recycled,” said Mark Buckley, vice president of environmental affairs, Staples. “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.”
