Office Depot launches school rules program

Office Depot has launched “Recycling Rules,” an ink, toner and small electronics recycling program targeted to the education market, including teachers and schools. This new program rewards teachers with gift cards to purchase school supplies they need for their classrooms while highlighting the importance of recycling.

Recycling Rules allows teachers, school administrators, parents and students to sign up their classrooms online at www.myschoolrecycles.com. After a classroom signs up, Office Depot will supply it with recycling boxes containing information about the program and recycling curriculum suggestions. The boxes can be filled with empty ink and toner cartridges (any brand) and small electronics, such as cell phones and rechargeable batteries. Once the boxes are filled, they can be shipped to Office Depot free of charge. Classrooms will be rewarded with Office Depot gift cards that can used to purchase the supplies they need.
