Today, HP announced a new program with Staples, the world’s largest office products company, which makes recycling used electronic devices – of any brand – easy, convenient and free. To participate, simply drop off used electronics items at the service desk of any Staples location across the continental U.S. Desktops, laptops, monitors, printers and keyboards are among the items accepted.

By making things simple for our customers, we’re hoping to collect and recycle tens of millions of pounds of equipment over the next two years.

We believe this collaboration reflects our industry’s need for more electronics recycling. And we’re grateful to have the Consumer Electronics Association’s vocal support for this effort.

“We applaud HP’s new partnership with Staples to recycle old computer equipment,” said CEA Vice President of Environmental Affairs and Industry Sustainability Walter Alcorn.  “This is a shining example of how our industry is stepping up to meet the challenge of recycling a billion pounds of consumer electronics annually by 2016.  Our industry goal is to make recycling electronics as easy as purchase, and this is definitely a step in that direction.”

At HP, we’ve recycled more than 2 billion pounds of electronic products and HP supplies since 1987. Our collaboration with Staples is another important piece to our sustainability goals around e-waste reduction.

Combined with HP’s existing collaboration with FedEx Office, it’s now possible for customers to take advantage of HP’s recycling efforts in more than 3,000 locations throughout the United States.
