Dell Offers Free Computer Recycling

Consumers who purchase a Dell Dimension desktop or Inspiron notebook can now recycle their outdated computer systems at no cost and without having to leave their home or office for alimited time. Dell’s offer is the first free home pick-up and recycling offer from a major U.S. computer manufacturer and is available next week to any consumer in the United States.

Attaching this no-charge recycling offer to Dell’s popular consumer computer models underscores Dell’s commitment to lower the cost of consumer computer recycling and increase the recovery rate of used products. Dell has offered recycling at no cost for used printers since the launch of the company’s printer products in March 2003.

“Dell remains committed to making computer recycling easy and affordable for consumers, and to increasing the number of consumers using Dell Recycling,” said Michael Rosenstein, Dell’s Director of Consumer e-Business.

Kate Krebs, executive director of the National Recycling Coalition, said, “This is the most compelling opportunity to recycle in the consumer-electronics industry. Dell continues to set a higher standard for environmental stewardship.”

Consumers purchasing a new Dimension or Inspiron computer will be asked if they would like to take advantage of the Dell Recycling program for no charge during their check-out process. Dell will include pre-paid shipping labels and instructions in the new system’s box for those who indicate they plan to recycle a system. Consumers simply place their old computer (any make or model) in the box in which the new one arrived, attach the shipping label and arrange for home pick-up by visiting www.dhl-usa.com.

Dell will continue to offer consumers a no-purchase-necessary home pick-up recycling option for a base price of $15 per unit (current limited time promotional cost is $5 per unit). Dell recycling programs accept any make or model used computer equipment.

Dell’s recycling programs are one element of the company’s four-part Total Product Life Cycle approach to sound environmental practices. They are integral to phase four, “Equipment End-of-Life Strategies.” The other phases are “Product Concept and Design,” “Manufacturing and Operations,” and “Customer Ownership Experience.” To learn more about Dell’s commitment to environmental responsibility, visit http://www1.us.dell.com/content/topics/global.aspx/corp/environment/en/index?c=us&l=en&s=corp.
