Samsung Electronics America launched Samsung Recycling Direct, a program for consumers to take their Samsung-branded consumer electronics sold in the United States to 174 fixed drop-off locations across all 50 states for recycling for no fee. The program will also accept non-Samsung-branded consumer electronics for a nominal fee paid directly to the recycler upon delivery of the e-waste. Home appliances are currently being taken back in a growing number of locations.
To date, Samsung has collected more than 1.7 million pounds of consumer electronics through existing Samsung take back programs in certain states and its current 50-state initiatives for the tack back and recycle program of toner cartridges, mobile phones, and office equipment. Recycling Direct expands the scope of products that are now being collected in all 50 states and the convenience for consumers to responsibly recycle their consumer electronics.
