Epson America today announced a new environmentally responsible printer recycling option through its U.S. Volume Bid Program for resellers and Epson ImageWay VARs.
Today’s announcement is made in conjunction with Epson’s participation at XChange 2013, an invitation-only strategic conference for IT VARs.
Through the Volume Bid Program, Epson provides authorized dealers and ImageWay VARs bid support services so they can compete more favorably in deals against competitive printers.
This now includes the ability for resellers to offer U.S. business customers – from small businesses to Fortune 500-class companies – the added convenience of free recycling of their old desktop printers – any brand – when purchasing three or more new Epson Commercial Workgroup Printers via bid.
Other Epson Volume Bid Program options still include printer firmware and driver modifications.
“We are pleased to underwrite this printer recycling program through the Epson Volume Bid Program that channel partners can leverage with their customers as another tool to win new business,” said Monika Dees, product manager, Business Imaging, for Epson America.
“This addition to the Bid Program underscores our long-term commitment to our commercial resellers and preserving our environment.”
To qualify for free printer recycling, says the company, resellers must submit a bid for a minimum of three printers of like models. Once the bid is accepted, customers will then have the option to use free FedEx pick-up and shipping of their legacy desktop printers (up to 75 pounds each, all brands) to a certified Epson recycler.
According to the company, the recycling offer is good for one desktop printer for each eligible Epson printer shipped to the buyer.
