Office Depot Launches Binder Recycling Program for Back-to-School Shoppers in Partnership with TerraCycle

Shoppers Receive a $2 Instant Discount on Same-day Binder Purchase at
Office Depot and OfficeMax Locations

BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Office Depot, Inc. (NASDAQ: ODP), a leading global provider of office
products, services, and solutions
, through its Office Depot and
OfficeMax brands, today announced the launch of its Binder Recycling
Program, encouraging shoppers to help preserve the environment by
recycling old binders. Starting today, shoppers can bring any old empty
binder to an Office Depot or OfficeMax retail location and receive a $2
instant discount off a same-day binder purchase.

The program is in partnership with TerraCycle, a company whose primary
objective is to recycle waste that is typically considered

with TerraCycle to help consumers participate in the movement for a more
sustainable planet.

“We’re excited to partner with TerraCycle this back-to-school season as
parents, teachers and students prepare for the school year with new
supplies,” said Ron Lalla, executive vice president of merchandising for
Office Depot, Inc. “The program provides a way to recycle binders in an
environmentally conscious way while also offering a discount to shoppers
who are looking for new ones.”

Customers can recycle as many binders as they wish and can receive
instant discounts for up to six binders per day*. The offer is only
valid in-store at Office Depot and OfficeMax retail locations.
