Dell recently made headlines by announcing its goal of becoming the first major computer company to go carbon neutral. In addition, Dell has implemented systems to both recycle and reuse old computers.
Through the company's partnership with the National Cristina Foundation, any consumer or business can donate working, used computer systems to charity in exchange for a possible tax deduction. The foundation then places the donated technology with local nonprofits and public agencies that service disabled and economically disadvantaged children and adults. Dell and NCF provide this work in Brazil, Canada, France, Ireland, the United States and the United Kingdom.
Dell also offers consumers free recycling of any Dell-branded computer equipment at any time. With purchase of a new Dell computer or printer, consumers can also take advantage of free recycling of other brands of used computer equipment. The recycling is managed by Dell's selected partners, who are required to adhere to Dell's high environmental standards.
