Staples supports King County residents; first national retailer to join the “Take It Back” program

Washington— Staples will become the first major national retailer to join the Take It Back Network for recycling computers and related equipment.

Staples makes it easy to recycle used computers, monitors, and other computer peripherals by simply taking the equipment at any one of 14 Staples stores located in King and Snohomish counties. A small recycling fee is charged to cover product handling and recycling costs. Staples is the only national retailer to offer this recycling service on an ongoing basis.

A recycling fee is charged to cover labor costs for the handling, transport and product disassembly. Staples will accept used computers ($8), monitors ($12), and other computer peripherals such as printers, desktop copiers, desktop faxes, scanners and all-in-ones ($8). Staples does not accept televisions, radios or stereo equipment.

Staples joins a growing number of Take It Back Network members who pledge to recycle right. All Take It Back Network members ensure that discarded electronic equipment will be processed in full compliance with local, state, and federal regulations and international trade laws. They manage the hazardous materials domestically or in developed countries and pledge not to export hazardous materials to developing countries for repair, recycling or disposal.
