Does Intel offer any recycling service?


In the US, Intel offers its customers residing in Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, or Utah a free mail-back recycling program for Intel® NUC, Intel® Compute Stick, and Intel® Compute Card products through Reverse Logistics Group (RLG). To participate and receive a free shipping label, follow the instructions below. When you receive the shipping label, pack the covered electronic device, affix the label, and send it in for responsible recycling.

  1. Go to the Request a mail-back label from RLG link.
  2. Follow the instructions for how to recycle your device.

Once you have sent the device for recycling, it is no longer secure. You should reset devices to their factory settings and clear your data before recycling. Instructions for most devices are available online. Your local recycling facility can give you more information.
