Staples Launches Free Electronics Recycling Program
The local office supply store will now accept electronics for recycling. The program is free and runs year-round.

“Consumers and small businesses can responsibly recycle their electronics every day at Staples locations nationwide, regardless of where the devices were purchased,” according to a press release from Staples.
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
“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 at 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," Buckley said.
Customers can drop off their technology for recycling at the store service desk.
Staples will collect the devices and consolidate them at its distribution centers. A certified recycler will then arrange to have the materials transported to a processing center.
