Dell Closing in on Recycling Goal

From Environmental Leader

Electronics manufacturer Dell is two-thirds of the way toward its goal of recycling 1 billion pounds of e-waste by 2014, the company has announced.

The Texas-based computer giant says it diverted 150 million pounds of used electronics from landfills worldwide in the 2011 financial year. That is an increase of around 16 percent on 2010, Dell says.

The company has partnered with charity thrift store chain Goodwill on an initiative that lets U.S. and Canadian consumers bring in unwanted computers and accessories for recycling, regardless of manufacturer. This program alone contributed 95 million pounds of recycled electronics to Dell’s 2011 global total. Follow this link for more details.
