Dell Recycled 150 Million Pounds of E-Waste

Dell, one of the strongest advocates of safely discarding trashed electronics, said it helped dispose of more “e-waste” in fiscal year 2011 than any previous year. Its Dell Reconnect program, which allows consumers to drop off old computers at Goodwill locations around the country, collected 150 million pounds, or 75,000 tons, of electronic equipment over the last 12 months. The company says this puts it nicely on track for its ambitious goal of reaching a total of one billion pounds by 2014.
