Laptops now recycled through ecoATM program

EcoATM has added laptop computers to the list of consumer electronics to be taken for recycling at kiosks in Nebraska.

The company said that electronics retailer Nebraska Furniture Mart is offering incentives based on Intel i3, i5 and i7-branded microprocessors. The incentives will take the form of in-store credits toward the purchase of a new Intel-based laptop.

As well as laptops, ecoATM said its kiosks already buy back mobile phones, MP3 players, iPods and video games.

EcoATM is also partnering with a non-profit organization called the National Cristina Foundation, which matches donated computer equipment with needy schools and non-profit organizations worldwide.
