If you have a computer or computers that you don’t want – what do you do with them? One option is to donate them to an organization that can use them, but often times the computers you have might be so old no one wants them.
Office Depot (NYSE: ODP) and HP (NYSE, NASDAQ: HPQ) have developed the country’s first free, nationwide, in-store electronics recycling program in which customers can drop off any brand of unwanted electronics at any of Office Depot’s more than 850 retail locations in the continental United States.
The program, which runs from July 18 through September 6, 2004, will leverage HP’s electronics recycling expertise and Office Depot’s retail presence to offer consumer and business customers the most comprehensive, convenient and environmentally responsible electronics recycling service available.
Office Depot and HP will collect and recycle a broad range of information technology and digital entertainment products from any manufacturer, including desktops, notebooks, keyboards, mice, printers, scanners, handhelds, digital cameras, fax machines, desktop copiers, flat panel displays, monitors, TVs (27″ or smaller), TV/VCR combos and cell phones. All products collected from Office Depot stores will be recycled at HP’s U.S. recycling facilities in Roseville, Calif. and near Nashville, Tenn.
