The retailer is running a one-off trial in its Nine Elmstore in Vauxhall this Saturday offering to take back a host of old products rangingfrom desktops, laptops, scanners and printers.
HP is then taking away the product to be recycled at aspecialist plant removing the hassle and potential cost from the user.
A spokeswoman for HP said the vendor had a policy of takeback recycling events and had carried some out in the past and if this trialproved successful it would look at extending the initiative to other stores andlocations.
In a statement, Sainsbury’s environmental affairs manager,Alison Austin said that it made recycling convenient for customers.
“Instead of having to drive out of their wayto recycle, they can drop their old equipment at the Vauxhall store beforetheir weekly shop. This saves time and helps the environment, and we’reexpecting to see some real IT relics from the past come to the store," she said.
