Staples Recycles!

I read today that Staples is recycling electronics which I think is just great.  My previous recycling consisted of dropping off stuff at a local Goodwill, and all too often I had to do it it when they were closed because I knew they wouldn’t take old or non-working electronics.  Here’s what Staples says:

“Staples makes it easy for customers to recycle e–waste by simply bringing their used computers, monitors, laptops, and desktop printers, faxes and all–in–ones to any U.S. Staples store.All brands are accepted, regardless of whether or not the equipment was purchased at Staples. A recycling fee of $10 per piece of large equipment is charged to cover handling, transport, product disassembly and recycling. Smaller computer peripherals such as keyboards, mice, and speakers are accepted at no charge.Equipment is bagged and sealed when received at the Staples customer service desk. The equipment is then picked up and delivered to our recycling provider Amandi Services, who uses industry–leading standards for data destruction and disassembles the equipment into its component parts for environmentally responsible recycling.”

Note that they do “data destruction” so you don’t necessarily have to (though it’s always a good idea).
