Boca Raton, Fla. - Office Depot has
launched a tech trade-in promotion aimed to help customers get money back for
their old electronics.
Plus, in recognition of the upcoming 40th anniversary
of Earth Day, Office Depot is aiming to collect 400 tons of products for
recycling during the one-month promotion window, helping customers grow greener
and prevent e-waste from ending up in landfills.
"In the wake of a tough economy, Office Depot is
excited to help our customers turn their old technology products into savings,"
said Randy Wick, merchandising VP for Office Depot. "Not only is this a smart
way for customers to earn extra cash and do their part to help the environment,
but it also provides a great opportunity for small business customers to upgrade
their outdated office equipment without breaking the bank."
Customers can continue to recycle their old ink and
toner cartridges to receive $3 back in Worklife Rewards, the retailer said.
