    ‘EASY’ Recycling Program raises $225,000 for Education - STAPLES Business Depot donates over $1,000 to 216 elementary and high schools across Canada

        TORONTO, Oct.05- STAPLES Business Depot today, announced that it
    will be donating $225,000 to elementary and high schools that participated in
    their ‘Recycle for Education’ Program over the last 12 months.
        “STAPLES Business Depot collected 225,000 eligible toner cartridges and
    is pleased to donate $1.00 for each one to local elementary and high schools
    in communities across Canada,” says Steve Matyas, President of STAPLES
    Business Depot in Canada. “The STAPLES Recycle for Education program is an
    easy way for educators, parents, students and our customers to help schools
    and the environment. This program has been so successful that we are proud to
    repeat it for the 2005/06 school year.”
        According to recent statistics one school can use 300 inkjet cartridges a
    year and each student uses a minimum of 6 to 10 cartridges a year.
        “Inkjet printers can be found in nearly every home in Canada,” states  
    Mr. Matyas. “Most cartridges – an estimated 375,000,000 – are thrown in the
    garbage and then dumped in landfill sites where it can take centuries before
    the plastic containers decompose, so recycling will make a huge impact on the
    environment.”
        The program is EASY; cartridges can be dropped into the specially marked
    recycling bins in any of the STAPLES Business Depot stores across the country.
        The money raised will once again be channeled to the elementary and high
    schools that register online for the program. To be eligible schools are asked
    to register with the program at http://www.recyclefored.ca before June 1, 2006. The
    funds raised will be distributed to participating schools in September 2006.
    STAPLES Business Depot expects to raise $250,000 for participating schools
    this year.
        All elementary and secondary schools in Canada are eligible whether or
    not there is a STAPLES Business Depot in their community.
        STAPLES Business Depot is a large supporter of public education and the
    environment.
