- The Downside of Upgrading Equipment
The personal electronic industry is booming. It seems like we are upgrading equipment nearly as quickly as we buy it. This is creating a glut of outdated electronic equipment like printers in our landfills. The metals and chemicals contained in these devices can be very unfriendly to the environment. There are ways to avoid introducing these toxic substances into the environment. Here are just a few things you can do to reuse and recycle your printer.
- Corporate Programs
You might not think many of the big name corporations are very environmentally responsible. However some are taking extra measures to make sure their products don't end up in the landfill. Hewlett-Packard has a series of options to help you recycle your old printer. You could trade it in towards the purchase of a new printer. According to HP, your outdate printer could garner as much as $700 credit towards an updated model. Your old printer doesn't even have to work in order to trade it in on a new one. If your equipment is especially old, the company will still recycle it at no cost to you. Learn more about these options by clicking here.
- Retail Programs
One of your local "big box" retailers may also be able to help you recycle your old printer. Much like HP's trade in program, Staples office supply stores also give credit towards a purchase if you turn in an older model. At the time this article is being written, they offer $50 towards a new printer costing $200 or more. Even if you aren't looking to buy, you can take an old printer to this store to be recycled. Dell brand printers are accepted at no cost to you and other brands typically cost about $10. Considering how much this step will do for the environment, it's a small price to pay.
