Dell Recycling Offer Gives Dell Users Eco-Friendly Alternative

Computers contain all kinds of toxins, so tossing them into the garbage and sending them off to a landfill isn’t the most eco-friendly thing to do. On the other hand, you don’t want them piling up in your closet, garage or basement. So, what can you do? Well, if you own a Dell product, you can take advantage of Dell’s Mail-back Recycling Program and arrange for Dell to collect your old product and take responsibility for recycling it.

First of all, before you turn your computer over to anyone for recycling or re-use, you must delete everything from your hard drive or remove the hard drive from your computer altogether.

If you decide to erase the hard drive, you can use products like Disk Wipe to ensure that no trace of old files, cookies, passwords, etc. remains. If you decide to remove the hard drive, there are services that destroy them, so you don’t have to worry about old hard drives piling up in your closet, garage or basement either. Companies like Shred-It have locations throughout the U.S., so finding one nearby shouldn’t be too much of a challenge.

Those who don’t own Dell products can also take advantage of this program. Says Dell, “if you buy a new Dell product, we’ll recycle your old computer even if it isn’t a Dell–branded product. Just select ‘free recycling’ when you are customizing your new system, and we’ll recycle your old electronic equipment at no cost to you, anywhere in the US.”

Recycling old computers and other Dell brand products just got a little bit easier. Dell users might be interested in knowing that the company also provides recycling services for Dell ink and toner cartridges.
