Dell has completed its implementation of a world-wide recycling program, meeting a timetable set earlier this year as part of its global recycling policy.Dell is the first and only computer manufacturer to offer such a program. This recycling offer includes responsible recycling of used Dell-branded computers and peripheral equipment at no-charge. The program does not require a replacement purchase. Previously, Dell had offered U.S. consumers no-charge recycling of any brand of used computer or printer with the purchase of a new Dell computer or printer. The company has offered a no-charge consumer recycling program for Dell-branded products in Europe since November 2003. Dell also offers product recovery services to business and institutional customers in most major markets. The company’s Asset Recovery Services, offered to business and institutional customers, provides reverse logistics, value recovery and reporting.
