Dell has announced plans to provide free recycling of any Dell-branded product for consumers around the world as part of its new global recycling policy.
The company currently offers consumers no-charge recycling of any brand of used computer or printer with the purchase of a new Dell computer or printer.
Under its new policy, Dell will provide consumers no-charge recycling of any Dell-branded product, regardless of whether a replacement product is purchased. The company plans to launch the service in the U.S. by September, and globally by November. It is currently available in Europe. Dell has been focused on developing market-driven consumer recycling services for several years.
Today Dell offers product recovery services to business and institutional customers in most of its major markets including Europe and North America. The company expands product recovery services on a country-by-country basis as its share grows. Dell's Asset Recovery Services, offered to business and institutional customers, provides reverse logistics, value recovery and reporting.
