[GreenYes] Fwd: More on 2/17-18 Staples Computer Reuse & Recycling
Recommendation:  Check with your local Staples store before 
promoting!  Also, double-check with them on Friday if they say today that 
they are NOT doing anything, as it appears that some local managers may not 
know until the weekend.

The Office of Solid Waste Reduction and Recycling of S.C. has called the 
S.C. District Staples Office and they confirmed that all the Staples stores 
were participating. All individuals, schools, agencies and businesses can 
participate. There is no charge for this service and you do not have to 
purchase anything from Staples. Staples is accepting computor equipment 
including monitors and hard drives.

Staples is not advertising this in the newspapers only with flyers at the 
checkouts. Please share this information.
