I can’t think of a person I know that doesn’t have at least one leftover electronic device that needs to be properly recycled. And that includes me! I’ve had a broken tablet sitting in my hall closet for at least 8 years. Wondering where to recycle that broken printer that has been sitting in a closet for years? How about the old speakers in the garage? If you have been stuck for where to recycle electronics, I have the answer for you today.
Almost every Staples Office Supply store is a drop-off point for electronics to be recycled, including:
- desktop PCs
- tablet PCs
- external hard drives and small servers
- all computer monitors
- desktop copiers
- all-in-one devices
- PC speakers
- streaming devices
- Universal Power Supply (UPS battery backup)
- mobile phones
- GPS devices
- MP3 players
- digital camcorders
- digital cameras
What To Do First
Of course call first to make sure. And don’t forget to wipe the device of any personal information.
Remember, most towns host hazardous waste, electronic recycling, paper shredding events. Mostly in the spring and fall. Just google your town or county, 2021, and the phrase electronic recycling. If you can’t find one that way call the town for more information.
