Staples Makes More Recycling Happen and Helps Calculate Energy Savings

Staples Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLS) announced today that it has collected 450 million ink and toner cartridges for recycling in the U.S. since 2005, averaging more than 60 million cartridges per year for the past four years. Through the cartridge recycling program, Staples has helped recover and recycle 234 million pounds of plastics and metals, diverting roughly the weight of 8,000 full garbage trucks from landfills.

"At Staples, we are committed to reducing waste going to landfills and reusing valuable resources through our recycling services," said Mark Buckley, vice president, environmental affairs, Staples. "As the largest recycling collector of ink and toner cartridges in North America, Staples ink and toner cartridge recycling program helps our customers and the environment. Staples is thrilled to reach this milestone of 450 million recycled ink and toner cartridges."

Staples' ink and toner cartridge recycling program lets customers receive $2 back in Staples Rewards® per recycled cartridge, up to 10 per month. Used cartridges can be dropped off at any Staples retail location or through the online program. Ink Recycling Rewards can be used to buy almost anything from Staples, in-store or on Staples.com. In addition to recycling rewards, Staples Rewards members receive free shipping from Staples.com and up to five percent back on all purchases. Staples is pleased to work together with HP to make cartridge recycling available to all our customers.

New Staples Energy Calculator

Staples customers can celebrate Earth Day and save money. Today Staples launches new interactive energy calculator to help customers save money and take control of their energy usage. The calculator allows customers to compare their own energy consumption to other homes and small businesses in their area and determine their most power-hungry appliances in terms of cost/year.
Electronics Recycling

In addition to the ink and toner cartridge recycling program, Staples has recycled 85 million pounds of office electronics since 2007.

"Our small business customers have told us they want to be more environmentally friendly, but they are pressed for time," said Buckley. "That's why Staples makes it convenient for them to recycle their old technology devices at Staples stores across the country whether or not they purchased those items from us."
