Check locally: STAPLES STORES WILL TAKE OLD COMPUTERS FOR REUSE ANDRECYCLING FEB. 17 & 18 2002



Hi,

I apologize for the cross posting

I checked with the closest store to Omaha, in Fremont. The manager's
understanding is slightly different. But he did say that on those days he
would accept computers whether one wanted to get $100 off of a new system
or not.  He did not know about the $20 off of a $100 purchase.  He also
indicated that as long as a purchase is involved, the return *might* go
beyond the two day window mentioned below.

Since I didn't find this promotion on the Staples.com web site, i contacted
their corporate office, and am awaiting word from them about this.  Will
let you know if I find a URL describing the promotion.  would appreciate
others knowing of such a site doing the same

regards,

ry

STAPLES STORES WILL TAKE OLD COMPUTERS
FOR REUSE AND RECYCLING FEB. 17 & 18

Staples, which operates more than 1,400 "superstores" for office
supplies, will accept computer equipment for reuse and recycling at its
stores nationwide this Sunday, February 17 and Monday, February 18
(Presidents' Day).  Individuals and businesses can bring in their old
computer equipment, including monitors and hard drives.  There is no
charge for this service.  Through a partnership with Gifts in Kind
International, computers will be refurbished and given to children's
organizations in communities across the country.  Computers that are
unable to be rebuilt "will be recycled responsibly to generate reusable
materials," according to the press release.


To find the locations of Staples stores, see their website at:

http://www.staples.com   Click on "Find a Store" at the top.

If you click on "United States" and give your city or zip code, it will
find
the closest stores, and will give their address and phone number.  To
confirm store hours and whether they will accept a certain type of
computer equipment (especially anything unusual), people can call the
store directly.


People who bring in old computer equipment to Staples during this event
can receive a $100 savings on a new computer with an Intel Pentium 4
processor, or $20 off a purchase of $100 or more for other Staples
products purchased during those two days.
