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.
