[greenyes] Dell offers 99 cent computer recycling
Apologies for cross postings.
 
Take advantage of a limited time offer from Dell Computer to recycle up
to three used computers (actually, 3 shipped units up to 50 lbs. per
unit) for 99 cents each!! Check it out at
http://www.dell.com/us/en/dhs/topics/segtopic_dell_recycling.htm and
scroll down a bit for the first item in the left hand column. Lots of
terms and conditions to check out, and a few hoops to jump through, but
why not take advantage of one of the best deals in town. If more people
respond to this than to their $15+ recycling, it will demonstrate the
demand for inexpensive end-of-life equipment disposition. Share this
information to your lists.
 
Dell and the Computer TakeBack Campaign are running neck and neck in the
week leading up to Dell's July 18th annual meeting. Only days after a
report detailing Dell's use of prison labor for e-waste recycling, the
company ended its relationship with UNICOR. After the Campaign launched
its "Hard Drive Across the West" in Seattle on July 10, promoting
producer responsibility in several western cities en route to Austin,
Dell's PR machine ginned up extensive media work and stakeholder
outreach in all of those cities to blunt the force of our "stunt." It
appears Dell has only announced this 99 cent deal publicly to the media
in Denver, CO, the site of our next campaign action.

If you take advantage of Dell's 99 cent deal, drop us a line to
info@no.address We'd like to know how many folks take
advantage of e-waste recycling when "the price is right."
