Staples Launching E-Waste Recycling Program for Businesses

Staples Inc.’s business-to-business division is launching a recycling service for business to recycle old electronics.

The Technology Recycling Service by Staples Advantage, a division of the Framingham, Mass.-based Staples, is in partnership with Electronic Recyclers International Inc. (ERI), Fresno, Calif., according to a news release.

The program allows businesses of all sizes to recycle equipment, from cell phones and keyboards to telecom equipment and multi-function devices, through three steps: order recycling boxes from; fill boxes with electronics and ship to Staples using a provided return label; and receive a certificate of recycling from Staples that the electronics have been properly recycled and data safely removed. The certificate is accredited by the e-Stewards Initiative, a program of the Basel Action Network, which aims to responsibly recycle electronic waste.

The benefits, according to Staples, include guaranteed data destruction by ERI and environmental compliance.
