Got old binders? Recycle them for free at Office Depot


Various binders of many colors

Binders are notoriously difficult to recycle, but now TerraCycle, Office Depot and OfficeMax stores are offering free binder recycling drop-off. There is no registration required -- simply drop off your old binders at a participating location. TerraCycle will deconstruct the binders and ensure the metal, cardboard and plastics are recycled.
