To encourage consumers to recycle and dispose of electronic devices in an environmentally sound manner, Sony has
established a national (U.S.) recycling program for consumer electronics. The Sony Take Back Recycling Program allows consumers to recycle all Sony-branded products for no fee at 75 Waste Management (WM) Recycle America eCycling
drop-off centers throughout the U.S.

The program, which begins on Sept. 15, was developed in collaboration with WM Recycle America, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Waste Management, Inc. The program also allows consumers to recycle other manufacturers' consumer electronics products at market prices, and may include a recycling fee for some types of materials.

Sony and WM Recycle America are also working towards the goal of having enough drop-off locations in all 50 states so there is a recycling center within 20 miles of 95% of the U.S. population. Consumers will also have the option of shipping their used Sony electronics products to select WM Recycle America locations.
