Dell – Making Recycling Easier

Staples and Dell partner together in recycling

Free, easy and responsible recycling is the centerpiece of our consumer program. Around the globe, we offer programs that allow for the free return of all Dell-branded equipment. In addition, Dell has convenient programs that accept any make or model of computer, monitor, printer or peripheral.


Dell offers customers free donation programs for unwanted functional computers in a number of markets. You can donate your used or unwanted computer to the National Cristina Foundation??to help disabled and economically disadvantaged children and adults in your own community. The foundation will pick up your computer at your door and put it to good use in your community. We’ll even give you a 10 percent discount off your next software or peripheral purchase with Dell.
