There was a time when the fax machine was one of the most technologically advanced pieces of equipment you could own. Those days are long gone, but many of us still have that clunky machine gathering dust. Take your fax machine to any Staples store, which will accept it for free and recycle it. Your old fax will get stripped apart, and the recyclable parts will be kept out of landfills. No Staples near you? No problem: Find out when your local e-waste recycling day is, and drop it off there.
