Recycle your computer equipment through our mail-back program

Dell wants to make recycling a simple and easy process for you, so we have partnered with FedEx to bring you our Mail-back Recycling Program. Through this program, you can responsibly recycle your unwanted equipment and avoid cluttering your attic, closet, garage or landfills without ever leaving your home.

Recycle Your Dell

We'll pick up any Dell product for free, anywhere in the United States through the FedEx Package Return Program. To properly recycle your equipment through this service, please review the following steps: 
  1. Delete all data from your hard drive
  2. Locate your unique identification number, also called the service tag, on outside of equipment
  3. Complete the Online Waybill form and print your shipping label
  4. Package your equipment and affix shipping label. Note: Dell does not provide packaging materials
  5. Drop off at a local FedEx location or call (800) Go-FedEx (800-463-3339) to schedule your pickup. Let FedEx know you would like to schedule a pickup for the Dell Package Return Program.
Recycle any brand with purchase of a new Dell

In addition, if you buy a new Dell product, we’ll recycle your old computer even if it isn’t a Dell–branded product. Just select "free recycling" when you are customizing your new system and we’ll recycle your old electronic equipment at no cost to you, anywhere in the US.

Printer Supplies Recycling

Keep your used cartridges out of landfills as well. Did you know it takes 1,000 years or more for one ink or toner cartridge to decompose inside a landfill? You can recycle all of your Dell ink and toner cartridges — for free — with us.

Institutional Packaging Takeback

Dell’s goal is to provide sustainable packaging for all the products we produce. As part of our Legacy of Good Plan our goal is to have zero waste in our packaging by 2020 by integrating alternative material into the packaging to create sustainable design quality and best-in-class packaging, while offering our customers an excellent experience. Recycling packaging locally helps to minimize the environmental impact from transporting empty packaging for recycling. Dell offers free take-back of packaging on a limited scope of products for institutional customers only. Please contact mail to: for more information.
