Market Velocity, the only provider of a full service solution to help companies trade-in, donate or recycle used IT equipment joins more than 12,000 organizations in 174 countries today to celebrate Earth Day, 2005.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 22, 2005 -- Market Velocity, the only provider of a full service solution to help companies trade-in, donate or recycle used IT equipment joins more than 12,000 organizations in 174 countries today to celebrate Earth Day, 2005. The theme of this year’s Earth Day celebration is "Protecting Our Children and Our Future" and that fits hand in glove with Market Velocity’s mission says Frank X. Dalton, Market Velocity chief executive officer.

"Electronic waste is the fastest growing element of the entire waste stream and poses a significant threat to our environment unless individuals and corporations are committed to disposing of used products wisely," says Dalton.

Market Velocity helps equipment manufacturers develop and implement customer programs for trading in, donating or recycling used IT equipment. The Market Velocity solution manages all business processes, returns, payments and tax credits making it easier for equipment manufacturers to offer customers appropriate options for equipment disposal.

"Any one of the three options helps our environment today and protects it for our children," says Dalton, but he also points out that by donating equipment, companies can help disadvantaged families or children in other ways. "There is a need for millions of used computers in schools and non-profit organizations that serve children, families and other citizens. Companies can maximize their investments in IT while helping others by donating used equipment."
