    OFFICE DEPOT WANTS EMPTIES,LAUNCHES NEW TONER AND INK RECYCLING PROGRAM
    Office Depot Unveils ‘Recycling Rules’ Program for Classrooms
    Office Depot, a provider of office products and services, has launched “Recycling Rules,” an ink, toner and small electronics recycling program targeted to the education market, including teachers and schools. This new free program rewards teachers with a gift card to purchase the school supplies they need for their classrooms while highlighting the importance of recycling, the Company said. Recycling Rules allows teachers, school administrators, parents, and students to sign up their classrooms online at myschoolrecycles.com. After a classroom signs up for the Recycling Rules program, Office Depot will supply it with recycling boxes containing information about the program and recycling curriculum suggestions.

    The boxes can be filled with empty ink and toner cartridges (any brand) and/or small electronics, such as cell phones and rechargeable batteries. Once the boxes are filled, they can be shipped back to Office Depot free of charge. “The Recycling Rules program is a great way to educate students about the importance of recycling, while providing teachers with a great way to get many of the supplies they need for their classrooms,” said Yalmaz Siddiqui, Director of Environmental Strategy for Office Depot. “This program is just one more example of how Office Depot is developing innovative ways for our customers to benefit from our green initiatives.”

    According to a release, Recycling Rules could not have come at a better time. In fact, 92 percent of teachers spend their own money on supplies for their classrooms. According to a recent survey by the National School Supply and Equipment Association, on average, teachers spend $398 on classroom supplies and $538 on instructional materials annually, totaling $936 of annual classroom expenses.* “Educators do so much for the students, schools and communities they serve,” said Adriana Vethencourt, Director of Loyalty Marketing for Office Depot. “The Recycling Rules initiative in conjunction with Office Depot’s ongoing Star Teacher and 5 percent Back to School Programs is Office Depot’s way of helping teachers with the supplies they need in their classrooms every day.”
