Recycle Electronics Through the Mail

The US Postal Service is starting a new recycling program for small electronics. The “Mail Back” pilot program will include ten areas, but if positive, may be available across the country this fall.

Customers use free envelopes found in 1,500 Post Offices to mail back inkjet cartridges, PDAs, Blackberries, digital cameras, iPods and MP3 players – without having to pay for postage.

Clover Technologies Group will receive the recyclables and will refurbish and resell the items, use the component parts in other electronics, or recycle them. They have a “zero waste to landfill” policy.
