Recycle old computers, laptops

By TCEQ

With spring graduations recently passed and back to school imminent for students across the state, many Texans may wonder what they can do with their older laptops and computers as they prepare to upgrade or replace older computers.
Fortunately, the Texas Recycles Computers website provides options for recycling of your home computer at no charge. The easiest way to find out what you can do with your older used electronics is to search the website by brand.
Have an old HP? Hewlett-Packard's recycling program includes partnerships with Staples and FedEx Office for consumer computers to be dropped off at those store locations.
Ready to upgrade your MacBook? You may be eligible for an Apple Store Gift Card if it is still in good working condition, or recycled otherwise.
The options do not stop at laptops and desktop computers - many tablet manufacturers are also listed on TexasRecyclesComputers.org if you are looking to recycle your tablet computer.
Manufacturers have many options to provide consumers with resources: mail or email pre-paid shipping labels, provide drop-off locations at their stores or through partnerships with non-profits and other businesses.
Check TexasRecyclesComputers.org for their details.
