    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.”
