Recycle it- participate in manufacturer recycling programs

IT Supplies has had several requests over the years from eco-concious customers regarding more information on manufacturer recycling programs. We urge all of our customers to participate in manufacturer programs. Recycling a great way to help the environment and helps drive down the cost of new raw materials needed for manufacturing a variety of different items. Recycling not only trims the amount of technology waste, but passes savings along to customers.
