Product Recycling and Reuse Initiatives
One by-product of the last decade's explosive growth
in consumer electronics is the increase in obsolete electronic goods. Traditionally, consumers and corporations have either thrown those goods away
or incinerated them. But such disposal methods could affect the environment, by adding more volume to our rapidly filling landfills or possibly creating hazardous
air emissions.

One solution to the disposal problem is recycling. In
our local communities, Intel has been actively recycling computers through the Students Recycling Used Technology (StRUT) program. This nonprofit organization trains students, while providing a way to get used technology from businesses into schools.

Intel and the Northwest Regional Education Service
District founded StRUT in 1995. Students involved in
the program evaluate, repair and refurbish donated computers, and then donate those computers to local schools. Today, more than 140 schools and 3,000 students participate in the StRUT program. The result? More than 30,000 computers have been diverted from landfills and have ended up in classrooms instead.
