Kudos For Dell’s Free Part Recycling Program

We received our replacement keyboard for our Dell laptop today.

A line at the bottom of the slip caught our eye, “For information on how to properly dispose of your part, please go to Dell’s recycling website:” and then provided a URL.

Firstly, the link was broken. A quick search on Dell’s site found the right one.

There we punched in our address and such and Dell gave us a prepaid DHL waybill to send the package to their recycling center in California.

We don’t run with the tree chaining crowd, but this is pretty neat.

Now if only the link was correct and wasn’t 69 characters long. Think of all the energy wasted by thousands of customers typing that in.
