Staples, the Office Superstore, is now operating an everyday program to collect binders in their stores nationwide! You can make your back-to-school shopping eco-friendly by bringing your empty, used binders to a Staples store near you. When you bring your empty binder(s) to the checkout counter, you will be given a $2 credit toward the new binder you want to purchase*.
In 2012, Staples launched the first retail-based collection program for binders. Today, that collection program is an everyday offering. Operated in conjunction with Avery®, the goal of the program is to help the environment while incentivizing shoppers to recycle.
To participate, all you have to do is bring in your old (and empty) binder to any Staples location - there is a link to a Store Locator below, so that you may locate the store nearest you. When you turn in your binder(s) at the check-out counter, you should bring the binder(s) that you want to purchase with you. For each binder you turn in, you will receive a $2 credit toward your new binder purchases*. By bringing your old binders to Staples stores, you are helping to keep these binders out of the garbage, and ultimately out of landfills. Every binder that we collect through this program will be recycled and used in the creation of new products.
