Great recycling opportunity for any schools with old desktops, laptops, monitors, and peripherals laying around. Amazing that they're accepting equipment from any manufacturer, the program is free, no purchase is required, the program includes data protection (recycled hard drives are ground into confetti-size pieces), and Apple will actually come and pick up the equipment.
Apple goes green, launches free recycling
K-12 schools and higher-education institutions can recycle their used computers and peripherals from any manufacturer free of charge, under a new limited-time offer from Apple Inc.
All accredited K-12 schools, colleges, and universities with at least 25 pieces of recyclable equipment (limited to computers, printers, and displays) are eligible to participate, and there is no purchase required, Apple says.
In addition to the minimum 25 pieces, Apple also accepts all brands of the following electronic equipment: computers, monitors, laptops, printers, fax machines, scanners, desktop-size copy machines, CD drives, hard drives, TVs, VCRs, projectors, overhead projectors, networking equipment, cables, keyboards, and mice.
The program is available until July 31--meaning schools must register by this date--and extends to PCs as well, not just Macintosh devices.
