APPLE OFFERS CUSTOMERS PROGRAM TO RECYCLE TONER CARTRIDGES

 APPLE OFFERS CUSTOMERS PROGRAM TO RECYCLE TONER CARTRIDGES
 CUPERTINO, Calif., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to reduce environmental waste and conserve natural resources, Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), has set up a program to help customers recycle spent toner cartridges from Apple's laser printers.
 The Apple Clean Earth Campaign provides a convenient and free-of- charge method for returning the toner cartridges used with all Apple LaserWriter printers -- the original LaserWriter, the LaserWriter Plus, the LaserWriter II and the Personal LaserWriter. The program, which begins today in the United States, will be rolled out worldwide on a country-by-country basis.
 "Apple is working to minimize the environmental effects of our products throughout their life cycles," said John Moon, Apple's vice president of Imaging Products. "This new recycling program moves us forward with some of our most popular imaging products."
 Beginning in the spring of 1992, all Apple toner cartridges will include information on the Clean Earth Campaign. In the United States a prepaid shipping label will be included in the cartridge box. The customer simply repacks the spent cartridge into the new cartridge box, seals it and attaches the label. Customers in the United States can call the Apple Customer Assistance Center (800-776-2333) to obtain a prepaid shipping label. Customers in other countries are asked to return their spent cartridges to an authorized Apple reseller.
 For every cartridge returned in the United States, $1 will be donated to an environmental organization. The contribution will be split between the National Wildlife Federation and the Nature Conservancy.
 Apple's corporate policy pledges the company to do business in a manner that conserves the environment and protects the health and safety of its employees, customers and the communities in which it operates. Apple believes a comprehensive environmental, health and safety program is an essential component of its business approach.
