Apple Education Recycling Program

Our Lower School tech coordinator passed this link my way a few days ago, and it’s worth sharing.  If your school meets the requirements and has at least 25 monitors, CPUs and/or printers to dispose of, Apple will haul them away and recycle them in an environmentally responsible manner FOR FREE.


This is keeping in line with Apple’s commitment to be more environmentally responsible by cutting down on e-waste, with current and future products, as well as retroactively.  We’ll be getting rid of several eMacs and a ton of CRT monitors, both of which contain hazardous chemicals and materials.  If these were to simply be tossed in the dumpster, they would end up in a landfill and eventually seep back into the environment.

I’d definitely recommend giving it a look if you and your academic IT department have a lot of old computers to dispose of.  If it doesn’t violate the terms of the agreement, maybe even organize an old computer drive at your school.  Have everyone bring in their dead, extra, or old computers and monitors from home, and schedule a pickup with Apple.
