Staples in Cincinnati Makes it Easy to Recycle and Save with New Binder Recycling Program10:28 EDT Wednesday, April 04, 2012 FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (Business Wire) -- Staples, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLS), the world's largest office products company and second largest e-commerce company, is making it easy for customers in Cincinnati to shop and save on binders. Staples today announced an exclusive, first-of-its kind retail program with TerraCycle, Inc. that creates an eco-friendly, money-saving solution for customers to trade-in used binders. Spring is a perfect time to clean out the desk to get rid of older, worn binders and replace with newer, more professional products. Currently in participating Cincinnati stores, shoppers will receive $2 off the purchase of a new binder for each binder that they bring in to recycle. The discount must be applied on the same day the binder is recycled. There are no limits on the number of binders or brands that can be recycled but no more than $2 will be discounted off any new binder. The instant discount can be used toward any binder sold in Staples stores, including Staples® BETTER® Binders or the new customizable planning binder from the Martha Stewart Home Office™ with Avery™ product line sold exclusively at Staples. This program will be available in select stores within the Cincinnati area.
