Recycling Blue Coat Products
The BluePlanet Initiative
The BluePlanet™ initiative is intended to reduce the company’s environmental impact, save operational costs and educate employees to decrease their own carbon-footprints.
An integral component of the BluePlanet™ initiative, the Blue Coat Product Recycling Service not only reduces materials going into landfill from Blue Coat products, but creates a larger supply of spare parts to meet service requirements for older equipment still in use.
Product Disposal & Recycling
All new Blue Coat products are shipped with simple instructions and terms and conditions for how to return legacy product and why doing so benefits the environment right in the carton. With paperwork for return shipment to central collection points provided by Blue Coat and return shipping costs pre-paid, we make recycling of old Blue Coat appliances efficient and painless.
