Staples Sponsors National Computer Recycling Feb. 17-18

In a quandary about what to do with old, obsolete computer equipment? Staples, the office superstore, is hosting a computer recycling event Sunday, February 17 and Monday, February 18 in Staples stores nationwide. Consumers can bring outdated computer systems into Staples retail locations and receive a $100 savings on a new computer with an Intel Pentium 4 processor or $20 off a purchase of $100 or more for other Staples products purchased during these two days.

Via a partnership with Gifts in Kind International, the world's leading charity in the field of product philanthropy, donated computers will be refurbished and given to children's organizations in communities across the country. Computers that are unable to be rebuilt will be recycled responsibly to generate reusable materials.
