Dell Recycling

Commitment to Customers, Commitment to the Environment

According to StEP (Solving the E-Waste Problem), an estimated 65.1 million tons of damaged, obsolete or simply unwanted electronic devices were discarded as e-waste in 2012. Much of what we call “e-waste” is not waste at all but rather whole electronic equipment or parts that can gain new life through reuse or recycling. As a global producer of computer products, a local citizen of the communities we serve, and a steward of the planet we share, Dell has a responsibility to recover used electronics and recycle them properly. By recycling products safely, we protect the health of people and the planet. Dell provides multiple convenient recycling options for customers to safely dispose their end-of-life computer equipment and lower their environmental footprint.
