Dell Expands Into Recycling

This is an interesting move for Dell.

We hope to be able to develop a cost-effective solution for our customers. By trying these different things, we hope we can come up with a solution that's very affordable for them and that's easy.

Obviously, there are valuable materials in the systems themselves that can defray the costs of the recycling. We're trying to see if we can leverage our supply-chain management and the competitive pricing that we get for freight and make this a business. We think we can make it into a viable business this year.

I love stories like this, where the search for a better bottom line leads to better environmental policies.
