Vendor-Supported Equipment Recycling

Our district recognizes that responsible disposal of outdated computers is important. However, it can be expensive and time consuming. When you buy a new car, you get to trade in the old one. Why can’t similar programs be established for computer equipment?

At least one vendor has launched a free recycling program for laptops. Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. will recycle used Toshiba notebook computers for free (without obligation) and will recycle non-Toshiba laptops for a small fee. Toshiba also sponsors a program that allows users to trade in functioning equipment for cash. Learn more about the Toshiba Trade-In and Recycling Program.
