Appliance retailer Office Depot and business appliance maker Hewlett Packard have developed the first in-store electronics recycling program in which customers can drop off any brand of unwanted electronics at any Office Depot location in the U.S.

The program, which runs from July 18, 2004 through September 6, 2004, will collect and recycle a broad range of information technology and digital entertainment products from any manufacturer, including desktops, notebooks, keyboards, mice, printers, scanners, handheld devices, digital cameras, fax machines, desktop copiers, flat panel displays, monitors, televisions (27 in or smaller), TV/VCR combos, and cell phones. All products collected from Office Depot stores will be recycled at HP's U.S. recycling facilities in Roseville, CA, U.S. and near Nashville, TN, U.S.

"We will continue to work with our business partners, environmental organizations, and other stakeholders to provide our customers with the resources and knowledge they need to be environmentally responsible," said Tyler Elm, director of Environmental Affairs for Office Depot

"Environmental responsibility is not only a part of HP's business strategy, it has become an integral component of the customer experience," said Lee Ray Massey, senior vice president, Imaging and Printing Group, Americas, HP. "This unique program with an important partner in the retail channel allows us to bring our recycling capabilities directly to consumers in a remarkably easy-to-use way."

"We look forward to this program increasing convenient opportunities for electronics recycling in the U.S. and leading to other productive partnerships among retailers, manufacturers, and governments," said Thomas P. Dunne, acting assistant administrator for the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
