Participation in the Program is subject to the following Terms, which may be updated from time to time at the sole discretion of Recycle4Education (“R4E”). By registering for the Program, You acknowledge that you have read these Terms and that Participant agrees to be bound and abide by these Terms, our Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions, found at http://recycle4education.clientrecycling.com, incorporated herein by reference. Should Participant object to any term or condition of these Terms, any guideline, or any subsequent modification thereto, Participant’s only recourse is to immediately discontinue participating in the Program.

  1. Credit in The Program will be awarded by R4E to Participant and credited to its account based upon the values established by R4E for qualifying products (herein referred to as "Products"). R4E, in its sole discretion, will determine, at any point in time, which types of Products are qualifying, the credit assigned to the various types of Products, and the monetary equivalent value of each credit awarded under the Program. R4E may change, at any point in time and without prior notice to the Participant, the credit assigned to the various types of Products, the designation of which types of Products qualify, and the monetary value of each credit in the Program. Product values can be found at http://recycle4education.clientrecycling.com .
  2. Do not send any item other than items listed on the qualifying Products found on http://recycle4education.clientrecycling.com. R4E will not issue credits for non-qualifying Products and will not return any Products or other items shipped not listed on the qualifying list of Products, as updated from time to time. Products that are on the Buyback List but are damaged at the time of processing are considered non-qualifying. Products that are shipped to the Company are not eligible for return.
  3. R4E reserves the right to cancel an account, charge a fee, or deduct a recycling fee from your proceeds as follows for non-qualifying product:
    • $0.50 per inkjet cartridge or ribbon
    • $1.75 per toner cartridge
    • $1.75 per toner tube, toner bottle or toner tank
    • $1.75 per printer components
    • $1.00 per cellphone or small electronic
  4. If you are using a box that contains a prepaid shipping label from the Company, or have downloaded a prepaid shipping label from the website, the Company reserves the right to deduct $7.50 per box if it contains less than the minimum number of Products per box. The minimum number of Products to ship per box is as follows:
    • 20 pounds of items consisting of empty ink and toner cartridges, used fusers, cell phones and small electronic devices; or
    • 20 items consisting of empty ink and toner cartridges, used fusers, cell phones and small electronic devices.

    The Company reserves the right to charge $4.00 for recycling boxes provided by Company to you that remain unreturned after a period of 1 year. If the Company is picking up pallets of Product at its expense, the Company reserves the right to deduct all freight charges from shipments that contain less than 3 pallets and/or less than 50 Products per pallet.

  5. Participant must designate a coordinator (the "Coordinator") in order to participate in The Program. Participant's account and credits may be accessed only by means of the username and password of the Coordinator designated for the Participant's account. R4E shall be entitled to rely absolutely and conclusively on all transactions undertaken by means of the username and password of the Participant's Coordinator and all such transactions shall be binding on the participant. Credit will expire if the Participant does not keep its Program account active. Recycling accounts will remain active as long as R4E receives at least one (1) qualifying product from Participant in the latest 12-month period. If Participant does not send at least one qualifying Product to R4E within any 12-month period, and Participant’s account has less than $25.00 of credits in it at the time, then, R4E may deactivate such Participant’s account and eliminate the balance of credits in Participant’s account.
  6. Product Eligibility – R4E shall determine, in its sole discretion, which products are eligible for purchase and/or recycling. R4E may terminate the eligibility of certain Products at any time without advance notice, but such termination will not affect any Products for which a Participant has already been credited.
  7. Participant shall be entitled to payment only if and when the value of its account reaches Twenty Five Dollars ($25). Payment will be made by check, at which time Participant’s account will be reset at zero. Lost or stolen checks will not be reissued. Participant is responsible for taxes, charges or other liabilities related to or resulting from participation in the Program.
