Apple is making recycling electronics easy for schools by offering to recycle old computers for free, but like any great offer, it's limited.
Any K-12 or higher education institutions are eligible to recycle old Macs, PCs and peripherals (keyboards, mice, printers, etc.) from any manufacturer, with no purchase required. The limits are these: a school must have at least 25 pieces of recyclables to participate, they must register by July 31 and pick-up must occur by August 31 and all equipment must be packaged according to the instructions.
Regardless of all the details, this is a great, if temporary, offer from Apple. If you or anyone you know works for a school that would be eligible, please pass on the registration information here. Until electronics companies institute permanent, free recycling for all their products, we'll have to take advantage of opportunities like these while we can.
