Bring in your old office technology products to your local Staples - even if you didn't purchase them at Staples - and we'll responsibly and securely recycle them for you for free.

We accept all brands, but there is a limit of 6 items per customer per day and we cannot accept televisions, appliances, floor model copiers, stereo equipment, alkaline batteries, and certain other household electronics.
