Recycle Dell Computers

By: James Kara Murat

Do you have a "totaled" or wiped out Dell computer? Do you want to be a more socially aware and environmentally concerned techie-owner by looking for ways to have your unit recycled? Here's some good news! You can recycle your empty Dell computers by availing of the company's Global Consumer Recycling Program, which aims to offer computer owners like you free, highly convenient and ecologically sound choices in order to recycle or refurbish. This social awareness project, which started in 1991, has helped thousands of computer owners worldwide and has provided a platform for them to help in the global effort to reduce solid waste. Whether a replacement product is purchased or not, the computer company will extend the free recycling service.

Dell, which uses the tagline "Dell believes no computer should go to waste" for the said project, encourages owners to free up some space by giving up useless or semi-working units and make room for better technology. The computer manufacturing giant offers an environmentally friendly method based on their Asset Recovery Services Program, which is in collaboration with the ecology and human health watchdog Environmental Protection Agency.

The company accepts any make, year or model of desktops and notebooks and they even need not be manufactured by Dell or Dell.com! The owner of an empty Dell computer can even just sit back and relax as Dell will gladly pick the unit up from the owner's home.

Interested donors are encouraged to go online to check Dell's official website and find out how the recycling program works.

Alternatively, an owner can recycle an empty Dell computer by dropping it off at a local plastic recycling plant. The establishment may still make use of the computer's plastic components in order to create other products.

In case a computer unit can still be used somehow, these do not necessarily need to go directly to the recycling department. These can still be donated to a foundation which helps disabled and less fortunate children and adults in various communities. Dell will also pick the unit up from the computer owner's home.

Indeed, to recycle an empty Dell computer will go a long way in keeping the planet clean from waste and more eco-friendly.
