We made an exciting announcement this morning that expands recycling options for our customers. Beginning today, any Dell-branded equipment can be dropped off for recycling at any of 1500 Staples stores in the United States for free recycling. Staples is the first and only national retailer to offer Dell customers an everyday, free drop-off recycling option for their technology products. This program is one of the largest on-going computer recycling programs to be launched in the United States.
Dell and Staples have both been leaders in providing convenient and responsible computer recycling options. Our combined efforts in providing another free recycling option for Dell equipment will help to continue increasing the amount of equipment collected for responsible recycling.
We encourage all consumers who have used computer equipment they no longer need to recycle or donate it. You can find a Staples store here to take advantage of this new program. Dell will also continue to offer our free home pick-up recycling program and the Dell-Goodwill Reconnect program in several markets. That combined with our free donation service managed with the National Cristina Foundation gives an unprecedented number of recycling opportunities.
