EPA encourages recycling electronics
The EPA, as part of its Earth Week activities, is encouraging consumers to use the EPA's Plug-In to eCycling partner programs to recycle electronics such as cell phones, computers, and TVs. The partnership includes electronics manufactuers and retailers who offer various recycling options to consumers such as take-back or trade-in programs in store or online; some of the companies involved are Best Buy, Sprint, Sharp, Staples and Office Depot. According to the EPA, last year the program recycled more than 47 million pounds of consumer electronics. The EPA website also has information about finding a program that you can contact about recycling your electronics.
