Office Depot Activates Electronics Trade-in Program

Office Depot ®, a global provider of office products and services, and N.E.W. Customer Service Companies, Inc., on Sept. 4 announced the launch of the Tech Trade-In program, an electronics recycling service that helps customers get money back by clearing out their old, small- to medium-size electronics — all through a free, environmentally friendly solution.

The Office Depot Tech Trade-In program is powered by ecoNEW, a program administered by N.E.W.

Office Depot customers may trade in their old electronics for a specific Office Depot gift card, which is determined by a recycle trade-in value generated through the Web site, The program accepts LCD monitors, LCD TVs, digital cameras, desktop and laptop computers, gaming systems, MP3 players, camcorders, Smartphones/PDAs, and printers.

"In the wake of a tough economy, Office Depot is excited to help customers clean out their old technology, and provide them with a store credit in the process," said Randy Wick, vice president of merchandising. "This is also a great opportunity for small business customers to upgrade their outdated office equipment without breaking the bank."

The program has a "no export and no landfill" guarantee. Electronic equipment received will either be reconditioned or recycled. Some items may be sold into the secondary or used marketplace in whole machine form or disassembled and sold off as usable service parts. Recycled equipment and parts will then be broken down into raw material and used to produce new materials. The parts may become part of NEW's service repair network that supports more than 150 million customers across the nation.
